    rug time in upper grade
    By bzetchr

    Clip to ScrapBook
    I bring 4th and 5th graders to "the rug" (any open area in the room) for several things ... sometimes a lesson; when we are brainstorming a list of something; to share a special book; an important / serious discussion; just for a change of pace / routine. I call it "up close and personal". My classes have always liked the change - they say it reminds them of when they were "kids" :rolleyes: I jokingly tell them they still ARE "kids" ... they mean when they were in primary. It does keep them more focused when they are not near their desks / backpacks :) but I don't do it for everything...
