On Fridays, most of my academic time focuses on the science or social studies unit. These days still include reading, writing, and math lessons, but they are centered around a specific theme. This allows me the time for hands-on learning.
Each Friday we also celebrate the Student of the Week and read with our 3rd grade Book Buddies for 30 minutes.
Making Homework OPTIONAL Is the Way to Go!
