Mobiles and Matching

I was SO excited for the 1st weekend to come after school started, so that I could catch up on sleep. Didn't happen. Apparently, my body now thinks it's a great idea to try existing on 6 hours per night or so. BUT this is only in the school year. Go figure. AND I have jury duty on Monday. What's up with that?

Anyway, I had some great projects come back from our summer packet for geometry kids. The kids are so creative. Here are some:











I also did this activity just yesterday with my geometry kids. I like the fact that it's not necessarily a direct match up, so they have to think.

  3. I really like the string art! What was the assignment? I'd love to do something like that on one of our million half days.

  4. I know, I'm so impressed with them. Some made earrings, some made things to look like birthday presents ... I can't take responsibility for their creativity. The assignment was really simple and basically in this post:

    I think part of the success was that it was over the summer and they may have had more time to be thoughtful.

    Sometimes I get better results if I add this to my "rubric": ADD A WOW FACTOR ... basically wow me somehow.

    I'm not more specific than that, and usually they push themselves on it.
