I began Brown Bag Book Club a few years ago after reading about it here (The First Grade Parade). The kids love sharing a book they've read during the week. After they've shared their books they get a special treat to eat. This is a great way to get them talking about their books.
And here's the treat. Of course I heard a lot of "OhhHhhs and AhhHhhs" as they reached into the bag and for a moment I felt like the MOST AMAZING cook in the world. Then reality set in with how simple a treat this was to make. At least I had that moment!!
Here they are devouring their snack.
