    Smile to break with her soggy tissue

    "Aaaaachoooo! OK, everyone--youcan go," said Miss Levy, waving us all off to break with her soggy tissue.

    What does the phrase in bold indicate?

    Re: to break with her soggy tissue

    I'm not completely sure, but I think it means that the teacher is motioning for the students to go to recess/lunch break with her hand while holding the tissue she just sneezed into.
