Kids learn that it's important to calm the body and relax before bedtime to make it easier to get a good night's sleep every night.
Q: What time did you wake up this morning? What time did you go to bed last night?
A: Count the hours between the time you went to bed and woke up. It's okay to use your fingers if you want to! If your count is between 9 and 12 hours, you did a great job recharging! If you did not sleep between 9 and 12 hours last night, make it your goal to sleep that long each night for the rest of the week!
One thing you can do to get a really good night's sleep is to have a bedtime routine that begins about an hour before your bedtime. This activity is similar to charades, and will help you learn how to make a bedtime routine so you can get enough sleep to restore your energy for the next day. One team acts out a word or a phrase without talking, and the opposing team guesses the word or phrase.
Turn and talk with the person next to you. Tell each other what you will do for your bedtime routine. Be sure to tell them what time you will start your routine.
Having a bedtime routine helps you sleep better so you can recharge your energy.
