Today’s #flipclass #flashblog post:
What is your strangest/most-off-the-wall lesson ever? Where did the idea come from? How did it work?
I live off the cuff. Anyone who knows me knows that I am THE procrastinator. Which is probably why I created today’s video at 2 AM this morning.
I do my best thinking in the shower….or right before the kids are gonna walk through the door; so I have a difficult time coming up with an answer. I’ll talk about my most recent activity – Visual Vocabulary Videos.
We read The Gift of the Magi every year, because I love it so; but I know that the vocabulary is really difficult for them. This year, I planned a week long unit using some of Erin’s (I’m Lovin’ Lit) materials.
I decided that I wanted to vocab activity to be more in depth, so I decided that students would create Visual Videos. HUGE hit! I did a little research and found out that New York Times does a yearly competition and I let students use that as a resource. Find them here.
Students had to act out the words and they LOVED it. I showcased my favorite last week (Idiocy – you can find it here), so tonight I’ll share another groups.
I thought they did a pretty doggone good job for two day’s worth of work!
Until the next time,
