Counting on Saturdays

Still a busy day for us at Luna, Saturdays are fun as well. Obviously 'games' are always popular, but as I have often noted here, they have their place in a lesson plan - but not always and certainly not as a default 'kill 10 minutes'.

Sometimes, though, you need a complete change of interaction, and quickly. Like if you push a little bit too hard on correcting homework errors or an innocent bit of competition turns into a rout....

Fortunately, with the space we haven't got at the moment, everything is within arm's reach! Saturday' rescue act was a quick game of 'Kittens' to make sure we remembered to put an 's' on the end of plural nouns.

Change of activity but on task. End of lesson with big smiles and traumas forgotten!
