I teach three grade levels and my fifth graders are into their third year with me. They totally get STEM and they love it and they are SUPER engineers!
After much consideration
Some one to pack for me.
Just to share a recipe with you.
I promise it was super easy and really good! (You might want to add some cayenne pepper to give it a little kick!)
What makes me feel boo-tiful is just making a difference. Talking to kids about their thinking, their work, what they believe is amazing.
This week I had a kid that was trying to finish a Marble Run.
When I went to snap this photo he turned to me and said, “This is an epic failure, so I don’t know why you are taking a picture!”
The thing is… IT IS NOT A FAILURE.
It is not a failure because it does work.
He never gave up.
He worked the entire time and was TOTALLY and completely engaged in the process.
It’s not pretty. But it is not a FAILURE!
And I told him all that. We had a fabulous talk about what failure really is and this is not it!
