    I have been doing this for the past 7 years in my classrooms. Listed below are some activities that I do with my primary ages students. You can also visit my website for updated information. My assistant and I are always trying to come up with something new or different! We also try to post photos occassionally.

    Fun Friday

    Thirty minutes is set aside from 2:00-2:30 pm on the last day of each school week as a reward for good behavior during the week. On the first day of the week, post the activity for all to see during the week (I have mine on the near the calendar area.) In order to “enter” the activity, students may only have a select number of punches on their weekly behavior ticket (usually 5 punches per week in Kindergarten.) Listed below are various activities that are free or inexpensive to use as the rewards.


    sidewalk chalk
    free choice centers
    theme/holiday party
    shaving cream on tables
    board games
    field trip
    finger painting
    theme unit activity
    guest speaker
    monthly birthday party (I do not allow individual student parties in my room)
