Fruitful Friday!

As of this week, I’ve instituted Friday center time. I have the Art Center, Writing Center, Computer Center, Leila Center, Reading Center (on the rug), & finally the Game Center.

At the Leila center, I pay the students and review concepts they may have had trouble with. For the first time, things went pretty smoothly. Today, in addition to paying the students and reviewing concepts they had problems with, I did their monthly Dibels testing & let them buy from the classroom store.

I know I’ve been promising to post pics of my classroom store. Well, here they are:

Here’s a link to my post where I talk about it:

    I really do enjoy reading your blog!
