Sometimes we forget...
Sometimes we forget that even though our students are young adults, they really are little kids at heart...
Today in Algebra 2, I stole an idea from one of the science teachers. Over the past 2 weeks, we've learned 5 ways to solve quadratic equations. So, when the students came into class today, on the board for their warmup was the following:
On the next page of your notebook, on the LEFT side, trace your hand :)
They all seemed somewhat confused but they followed the instructions :)
Then, I had them fill in the five fingers with the five ways we've learned to solve quadratic equations...
Finally, I told them to finish up their page by making a Hand Turkey. It cracked me up to see how excited the kids got - one girl literally was bouncing in her seat! :)
So here ya go... some Hand Turkeys for you to enjoy! Happy Thanksgiving!
And that is my #MyFavFriday :)
