Friday afternoons are always fun - for most of the kids...
The last 30 minutes of the day my grade level team gets together and gives students choices as they want to do with their Preferred Activity Time.
The students that get to participate have to have completed all their classwork, homework, and have had a good behavior week.
There are 4 of us, so one teacher is Study Hall. In that classroom, the kids have to finish their work. It's all about building responsibility.
Another one or two teachers head outside for free play on the blacktop. Kids bring out basketballs, play tetherball, run/dance/skip on the playground, talk with their friends...
We usually have an art room (which I love to host). Kids come in with their
crayon boxes and I provide a couple sheets of copy paper.
Depending on weather, sometimes we have a movie room or inside games.
Pretty much it's a chance to mix up the kids, meet some
new ones, and have fun...
...and prep for the next week. :)
