Tried It #1:
Today I tried...ZUMBA! I'm probably the most uncoordinated person on the face of the planet, but I tried it. FIFTEEN SONGS worth. No lie. I guarantee I'm goin' to be hurtin' tomorrow. I forgot my socks at home, so I'm one of those weird people that would rather suffer and do it without shoes than put my feet in my tennis shoes without socks. This experience was definitely full of giggles from myself and my
co-workers as I got lost on most of the moves. I got to freestyle "officially" durin' some parts. Ever seen a fish out of water, floppin' around? Yeah...you don't even need pictures for that. I'm sure your mental images are workin' just fine!
Tried It #2
Last year, my district officially asked us to take a course before doin' B.Y.O.D.(Bring Your Own Device) in our classrooms. Oops...I had already been doin' it. No problem-o. I did the online course and found this in my teacher mailbox the other day. My students and I hung this up outside our door, so others could see it when they walked in. They are proud to be a B.Y.O.D. class.
Some of my sweet precious darlin' babies are extremely wonderful about writin' their names and numbers and then highlightin' them. Others I'm still givin' reminders...even after one whole year and five weeks of school together.
And that is where the "Have You" comes into play in our class.
I have posted about this before here, but thought I'd bring it back.
There are 17 choices to choose from. I chose 5 that will work specifically for my kiddos.
1. Have you checked to make sure you have written your name and number?
2. Have you highlighted your name and number?
3. Have you used your best handwriting?
4. Have you checked all of your responses to make sure they are completed?
5. Have you asked a friend to check over your work?
These are my Finished & Unfinished hangin' files. This is where I have my students turn in work and I walk by and grab it. The students try to keep it organized for me.
I hope you go and check out everyone else's Tried It Tuesdays on Holly's blog.
P.S. I've almost reached 200 followers on Bloglovin'...definitely cool! Thank you sweet readers!
