That took up a surprising amount of the day, and students who finished early - quite a number of them - had a chance to start homework. In math, we worked on mixed numbers and improper fractions. It's not that hard a concept, but it's a new one to the students and it took a bit of time for it to sink in.
By the end of the day, they were tired, I was tired, and we pleasantly spent the last 30 minutes in free play on the yard.
