This year, I had to do the monthly bulletin board and it has to be October. I just love.love this month.
Simple, a little spooky and totally cool!
As it says above, it was Science Day and everybody participated. I thought “I could use this opportunity for my lazy students not to flunk the subject”
I told almost a month in advance. From 19 scheduled projects… only 5 showed up. I wanted to strangle them like Homer on Bart.
Anyway, I did what I could… and I was kind of glad they weren’t a lot of projects. It was kind of crowded.
The once who enjoyed it was my son who was with me that day.
I loved the smell of this one.
The effect of acid rain on plants.
I finally remembered to do the rally this year. I had been so busy that it just slipped my mind. It was done one windy rainy day and it was actually better than last year.
As usual, I gave them questions to answer.
They ran, jumped, answered questions and all in the shortest time possible.
I held the prizes for the next day, so I could know what to buy. Normally, I use candy bags but I wanted something different.
Two of this team won last year, so they are in row.
I like doing rallies. It’s something fun, to change the pace of the routine.
I somehow ended with an extra day with one of my groups and I gave them 3 choices for that free class: movies, Scrabble or running. They chose running.
This is pretty much the basic route that I use. Simple to follow and watch. For my secondary students, I added a physical challange with the squats, push-ups, crunches and jumps… and they had to run from station to station holding hands. They looked so cute.
Each station had a different set of questions with a really easy cheat code: 1,5 = D. 2, 6 = C. 3, 7= B. 4, 8 = A
If you want to try in your classroom, here it’s the printable for the Rally 2015.
