Happy April Fools! I remember when I taught in elementary school that April Fools Day was a little rough. Many students did not understand what constituted a prank and just ran around saying April Fools! Let’s be honest, I always fall for a few pranks. Hopefully you can get out this weekend and enjoy some spring weather, and read some great blog posts:
- Laura posted some great tips on using technology!
- I really like this variation of the weekend chat. I also like the details it gives for students who “don’t know what they did” over the weekend.
- #langchat was pretty hopping last week! Check out the summary on how to use novels in the language classroom.
- And to summarize it ALL: Kindness costs nothing.
Flashback to previous entries:
- Kahoot is still one of my students’ favorite games, and I previewed Ghost Mode last year.
- Laura posted “what kind of teacher are you?” questions to which I responded.
- One of my colleagues presented on learning and memory.
- I learned an idea to have students “pop-up” to share their ideas by my colleague which is perfect for middle school.
- Rasel’s Viven is a fun song!
- Also- I shared some Friday before Spring Break ideas… or maybe Monday back from Spring Break ideas for you!
