People will do anything for a pumpkin spice latte…
One day, folks. One day. 🙂
Design Thinking with Puppets– Sam Patterson has a cool set of videos he uses to help kids use design thinking to a specific audience…using puppets.
Gamification in the 5th Grade Classroom– This is pretty cool. A little out of my current time constraints, but I think it is a fun way to help kids. I love that homework is called a Side Quest and Tests are Epic Quests.
Progression Videos- Graham Fletcher– Fletcher has a series of videos that deal with the progression of learning for a variety of math topics. I haven’t watched them all yet, but could be useful.
Think Inside the Box- The Power of Creative Constraint– John Spencer offers a powerful look at innovation. We do not always (or often) have the ability as teachers/workers/students to simply think outside the box. We usually have constraints on us that cause some issues. But we can still be innovative…inside the box.
I start school next week and I look forward to the new year with a little anxiety, nervousness and an anticipation that wants to get started with my new group of 2nd grade kiddos. Happy Friday!
Teach them HOW at the end of the year– “This is a time of year when students are watching how we do our jobs as much as what we teach.”
4 Surprising Truths About the Creative Journey– Another good post from John Spencer about creativity.
CUE 2017 Keynote in Sketchnote Form– This is a fun way to take notes that creates little sketches instead of just a bunch of words.
Keynote in Video from CUE 2017- If you have time, this will challenge your mathematical thinking…in a good way.
Here’s a nice palate cleanser. Sorry this week has been busy with club stuff, band stuff, EOY stuff.
