So we're back from Spring break :( I was finally enjoying it starting Wednesday-so I could use a few more days off :) Oh well.
So we're back in full swing, and I've got kids that have forgotten things already!! WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?? What can we do to help these kids remember things over breaks: Thanksgiving, Christmas, Winter, Spring Break, etc.
The kids had a quiz today; couldn't be helped; that's how it fit in the schedule. So to help remind them, we played a REALLY fun review game Friday before break, and the winner from each class got 2 extra credit points on today's quiz. I also created a practice quiz for them to take home and take over break to help keep their memory fresh. And today, there are kids getting Fs on the quizzes :( I don't know what else I can do. I suggest daily flashcards, I played a fun game, and I created a practice quiz that was VERY similar to the real quiz they took today.
Have I done my part and now it's up to the kids? Is there anything else I can do to maintain memory over breaks??
Thanks for the suggestions in advance :)
