Drew's lunch success!

Due to his picky eating, Drew usually packs his lunch.  There is an occasional lunch he likes, though.  He usually throws his whole tray in the trash.  I am the one who takes dirty trays from the kids, so I am normally the one who goes out and takes it out of the trash can.  I talked to him this morning about it.  It was chicken nugget day and he was getting a tray lunch.  I said, "Drew, when you bring your tray up to me, it goes on the counter, not the trash, ok?" I repeated it a couple times  and made him fill in the blanks with the answers "counter" and "trash".  He did well.

At lunch time, I was pretty busy and not paying a whole lot of attention.  There was a mob of fifth graders bringing their trays up.  Suddenly, someone threw a tray down on the counter.  I looked up to see Drew scampering off!  He did it!  Woohoo!  I didn't even care that he didn't dump his leftovers in the trash.  It was especially hard for him since there were so many kids there at the time.  I have some sixth grade workers who I had told about it and they were happy with me for Drew's accomplishment.
