This was our final (after five years) Five in a Row co-op meeting. We ended with a great book, Night of the Moonjellies. Our final hurrah was a makeshift restaurant–The Crab Shack.
Reading the book
We split into different groups to get the restaurant prep done. Preschoolers worked on gluing "bricks" to cardboard. The other teams were decorators, sign makers, menu makers, and food prep. Everyone worked really hard to get ready!
Time to go to work! For this part, we broke the kids into two groups (eat and serve). Each child was assigned one of the following jobs: take orders, get orders ready (in the kitchen), snow cone maker, server (take trays to tables), or bus tables.
It was a great day. Bittersweet. We will miss our time with Five in a Row, but we are excited about our new co-op, too!
