Look what we did in school today!

Pom pom spiders just in time for Halloween!20141017_134230

Both the kids and club sponsors had a blast!  We made one incredible mess of the classroom we use for our club meetings, but today’s experience definitely fit the definition of learner engagement.  Club members learned to do quick division in their heads the old school way (sorry Common Core) to figure out roughly how many spiders we could get out of a skein of yarn.  Students learned how to measure 10 yards of yarn using yardsticks and using the 12″ floor tiles.   Real life experience!

This is why I love teaching.
