Although I wasn't at school on Thursday, the students carried on with their guest teacher. I was proud to come back and receive a positive note regarding the scholars' behavior. Friday, we participated in No Fun Friday by completed a team builder called Zoom. In this activity, students worked as a team to put the pages of a book in order. They were given several pages from the book with no clues about where to begin and, to make things even more difficult, they weren't allowed to show each other their pages. If you'd like to check out the book, click here. As always, I'm looking forward to more learning and leadership with our students this week!

February 21st - 24th
Yet another fabulous week at Scott Carpenter MS! On Tuesday, the scholars were put into new collaborative learning teams and then worked on their homework. Wednesday, we created our new team identities. I always love how unique the team names are, especially since we used a Kagan activity to find team names that embodied the students' likes. Some highlights from this round are: The Pink Pandaz, WWW.MEMES.COM, and the Cakepop Nuggets. Once each team developed a name as a group, they created a team collage that represented the individual members. Here's the team sign for a group called McDonald's!
