Ketchup Day

Only seeing each class once a week sometimes can be problematic if there is a holiday, P.D. Day, a student is absent, etc., because now a student or even the entire class is behind the other classes. So to remedy this, we have Ketchup Day, where we catch up on projects they are behind on.

Ketchup Day

Ketchup Day is actually Ketchup Week! But what do you do if the class has completed their projects and have nothing to catch up on?

We have Art Centers!

We have the Stencil Station!

And the Reading Station

Reading Station

For the kinder and first graders I tape yarn to the table and they practice tying bows.
Art period is 50 minutes long, usually they get two 20 minute station times. I allow 4 students per station, except at the painting station where there are two tables so eight students can go to this station.

Till next time!
