Friday Schedule

Since Friday is our last day before the Christmas Break, I have allowed students to plan the day however they want. While many wanted recess for 6 hours, they came to realize that wasn't possible. You would think they wanted to watch movies but they didn't. Here is our schedule for the day:

8:00 - 8:45 Explorations
8:45 - 9:00 Sharing
9:00 - 10:00 Simulation (Exploration Simulation)
10:00 - 10:50 Videos (Popcorn/pretzels - small snacks)
10:50 - 11:30 Lunch
11:30 - 12:00 Fun Science Stuff (Students are planning and taking care of supplies)
12:00 - 12:30 Reading / Writing
12:30 - 1:15 Recess
1:15 - 1:30 Clean Up
1:30 - 2:20 Special Areas
2:20 - 2:50 Gathering

We are not sure what the videos entail from 10:00 to 10:50, but I have a collection of small videos they would like to watch from a website called GoNoodle and my YouTube page, especially the Rube Goldberg videos. They would also like to have quick and easy snacks during this time. They mentioned popcorn and pretzels because they are easy to clean (I told them any messes they were responsible for). I have already notified our homeroom mom and she should be contacting you soon for help.
