End of the Day

We end our day with Cube It. We all sit in a circle. Each child rolls a die, one at a time, and then we read what it says to do together. We have little scraps of paper and several pencils in a container labeled Cube It we just use them then. We are currently using this with 5th and 6th graders. For list words that tell about it, we have them write a phrase using as many words as they are old. We pick a topic that we learned about that day. We learned about bears one day, so that was our topic. The following day we talked about Razzle Dazzle words. That is what I call our Expand your vocabulary words.
