I have the assigned handwriting workbook page and the Daily Analogy which they must explain on the board. They have 15 min. to work on both the Daily Analogy and the handwriting. Then we quickly change to daily math word problems. They have 15 min. to work all 4 word problems. We review all the work they have done, they self correct with red pen. On Friday, I review the word problems...they should have 16 problems. 25 points a day for corrected problems. I review the handwriting pages and analogy explanations. 25 points a day. Wednesday no analogy or handwriting...I write on the board..."We are writing, please join us." They free write for 15 minutes. The last Wednesday of the month, they select one to revise and rewrite for publishing. Then we make a month story book. Friday we have a math word problem quiz, one problem from each day so the kids are definitely energized on getting the problems corrected. They know they will see one a day again on Friday. Then after the word problems, we do a quick mad minute on multiplication problems. We keep a weekly packet to see how fast they are going. All these activities are quick and thought provoking! Lot's of skills are reviewed!
