Flashlight Fridays are when you turn out the classroom lights and students read or work with flashlights. ! If your classroom is like mine, Friday is assessment day (such as spelling, reading, or math tests or assessments) to see what students have learned for the week. Also, by the end of the week some students have lost their enthusiasm for learning. Many schools have assessments on Fridays or use formative assessments to analyze what students have learned for the week. In the past, I have had students who were disengaged on Fridays or did not want to work hard on assessments because they were boring. This past year I implemented Flashlight Fridays. Every Friday my students would bring flashlights and towels/blankets to make tents around their desks or to cover up with while reading around the room or taking assessments. After the first Flashlight Friday, my students were hooked. Students who were never motivated to do well on assessments suddenly loved showing how smart they were just because assessments were fun!
Flashlight Fun Days are reward Flashlight days that students can earn where students earn a day or class period of working in the dark using flashlights or lanterns.
