Time for another Rewind Post. This time we're focusing on Saturday School. Yup, you read right, Saturday School.
Our school decided that for 3 Saturdays leading up to FCAT (our big state assessment) we would offer Saturday School for our upper grades. Our teachers were strictly volunteer, and could volunteer for any of the 3 grade levels. I, of course, wanted 3rd grade reading. We had a lovely mixture of teachers from all grade levels volunteer to work Saturday School. Each grade level got 2 teachers for reading, and 2 for math. My partner for all three Saturdays was one of our first grade teachers. And she is AMAZING!
Our activities consisted of hands-on reading lessons. We watched Flocabulary videos and moved and read and went outside for character drawings. It was just a fun way to show what we knew and reinforce things we weren't sure about.
What a way to spend some Saturdays!
