This was such a long week! I am exhausted! We were Dibels testing (FUN!) so I think that was partly to blame. It changes the routine and that is never a good thing for my kiddos! If I have ever had a group of students that need structure, it is most definitely my homeroom class this year. :)
I am curious as to what everyone plans for their early finishers. I have students who can finish their morning work in about 2 minutes while it takes other WAY longer! The "rule" is the early finishers are supposed to read but they never seem to be doing that! I think I'm going to try journal writing so we will see how that goes. My kids also LOVE mystery word activities so I created some for them to grab when they finish morning work early. Click here for a freebie of the mystery word activity.
I would love to hear everyone's suggestions! I'd love to get some more ideas!
