It's the last week of school! 🎉🤗 I've never been one to figure out all the ins and outs of starting something before I try it. My students know me for jumping in because I encourage and expect them to do the same with me for our classroom and their learning environment!
So, today, we played the classic Connect Four... TRIVIA style! I've seen several Instagram posts of teachers in their classrooms playing with post-it notes, cut-outs, colored paper and the like. I had to finesse my high schoolers into the classroom from their gym time basketball tournament! Lol When the Principal says everyone must remain in class, that's what we do. I told them I'd consider taking them back to the gym once we played a game. (Lies) 🤷🏾♀️ It lasted almost the entire 90 minutes! 😳
Since most of them already had me for Spanish 1 and 2, I threw in a few language questions, but for the most part, I asked trivia fun facts about our state, the school, their peers, the staff, random stuff. It was hilarious! Take out all the sighs and smacking lips and the "Really Ms. Taylor?'s" and we were good. I even taught them the long Tic Tac Toe. Swipe! ⬅️ The smiles came out and they stayed in the classroom the entire time! ✔
The learning doesn't stop!
