Every afternoon, at the end of our school day, our class holds an afternoon meeting. We talk about what happened during the day, and what we have to look forward to on our next day of school. Early in the year, I introduce the idea of "the peach and the pit". Your peach is the juicy, fun part of your day. Your pit is the hard part. It's not the bad part, and that's a purposeful distinction.
