Wordless Wednesday

I'm linking up with Sugar and Spice for my first Wordless Wednesday.

These are designs done by a couple of students during Friday Fun last week. My question is: Do you have Friday Fun/ Self Selection in your class? How do you "justify" it?


  1. I used to always do "Fun Friday" and have my students that needed to finish any work from the week in their "Ketchup Folders" finish that before they could participate in Fun Friday. However, time has been hard to come by lately and we haven't been able to do this as much as I like! I always justified it by the other students completing their work!

  2. I also do ketchup time. I lay out construction paper, allow open computer time and you wouldn't believe how many want to read or do their math computer game that is actually homework...

  3. I'm starting a 'Fun Friday' thing next week, but it will be based around fine motor skills and gross motor skills tasks. I also have a 'free play' hour each week where my students can choose what they would like to do (within reason). I justify it because it is awesome social development time, and I try to let the students deal with any issues that arise, particularly around sharing.
