To my students, you are rock stars!
To their parents & guardians, thank you for your support!
You have all survived the block!
The students have worked hard all year. They have learned to argue, and critique sources, as well as write lengthy coherent essays and present their research findings.
Today we celebrated this survival with a whole lot of PLAY! I wanted to share the day we had because it was fabulous. I apologize in advance for the overload of photos! Over the past week, whenever we could steal a few moments, I allowed them to plan the day out based on their likes. Here are the results of the planning:
The students in Block 1 enjoyed a fun game of water balloon toss, then a game of red vs. blue kickball, and rounded it out with some bagels & class superlatives! There was even a jar of jelly beans that students guessed at the amount of, and the Oreo game, where you have to try and move the oreo from your eye to your mouth without using your hands. Victoria helped me photograph the game outside and the photos came out great!
Next on the Agenda? Finishing Twelfth Night by William Shakespeare! And becoming sophomores!
