The last Friday of each month we (all of 3rd grade) do “Fun Friday”. We spend the afternoon doing fun, yet educational activities. 2 teachers pair up to co-teach a lesson. I really enjoy it because it’s time for us to teach while doing fun lessons that we don’t always have time for during a regular school day. I think the kids like it cause it’s FUN!
In November we made these cute little Turkey snacks. The purpose of this was to teach kids the importance of following directions. We had a lot of kiddos that did NOT follow directions. Luckily we were nice enough to still let them eat their snacks.
I did this rotation 3 times…The first time I did not give them an example, just the directions to follow. Not a great idea. I learned quickly and from then on I demonstrated how to make the turkey so they could have a visual. Plus I got to reap the benefit of enjoying the turkey snack after!
