Lunch Lady Party

7 Oct

Last week I hosted a Lunch Lady Party based on the graphic novel series by Jarrett Krosoczka. I thought this would have a really well attendee p roger am as the books are constantly checked out, but sadly I only had 14 kids registered specifically for grad 2-4 and at the program, I ended up with about six kids who actually shows up for the program and none of them had actually read any of the books.

For the program, I read the beginning of the very last book, Lunch Lady and the Schoolwide Scuffle. After reading aloud, I let the kids gather art supplies to create their own lunch lady gadgets. At first, the kids just stared at me, but then they started thinking about what they wanted to create and spent almost 20 minutes creating meatball slingers, nunchucks, and more. I have found that the Ida need a decent amount of time to really get their imagination going.

When we finished up our lunch lady gadgets, we went on a scavenger hunt looking for the ten villains from the lunch lady series. I made copies of the villains from the bookS and taped them around the children’s department. This is where I found the kids are really impatient and don’t take the time to really look. It took the kids more than 20 minutes to find all the villains and in the end they were all working together to find the villains.  

Overall, I was disappointed by the low attendance of the program, but the kids had a lot of fun making gadgets and going on a scavenger hunt throughout the children’s department.
