Every Friday afternoon I reward my students who have made good choices all week and "stayed on green" (my behavior chart). They get to play with some of my math manipulative and games for the afternoon. It's really fun to listen to what the come up with while playing with each other. And I'm always amazed at how well they pretend. It's a good time for the kids to get to work on their social skills and for me to get ready for next week.
But this week is different....the kids are playing in FCF and I really don't have anything to do...which means.... School is ALMOST over!!!!! I usually use Friday afternoon to get all my papers & notes ready for the next week so I don't have to come to school on the weekends and work. But not this week... we're practicing for our play so we're not going to be doing many more papers or lessons!
I can't wait for this year to end and for my summer to begin. I'm taking summer classes, but it will be nice to not have to work all day & go to class in the evenings...which makes for a VERY long day!!!
