Free Friday

On Fridays I give my class 15 minutes of free time. It is funny. They think it is sooooo great to have free time. It is amazing the leverage you can get with 15 minutes! They have to be caught up on their work and they have to have their agenda signed each day. If they have things to catch up on they have to do that first. Works like a charm.

Usually they play games, write on the whiteboard, play with electronics of one sort or another, or make origami.

Today there were two who chose to read. Others were playing a racaus DS game (and believe me, they were noisy!) Others played on iPads.

But two chose to read!! These are two kids who wouldn't have chosen to read at the beginning of the year. I am so happy to see that reading is something they are choosing!
