Reflection: Classroom Setup Dark Day in the Deep Sea: Day Four of Five Rescue! - Section 2: Flip Book Share!


My students tend to get bored if we do the same thing over and over again, so I try to be one step ahead of them!  I notice that they're getting restless with the way we have been sharing our flip book entries, so today I changed it up!  I had the students play musical chairs and head to a different seat by counting down from ten.  Then I had them share with the new students around them.  There was lots of excitement, asking and answering of questions, and character traits flying around the room!
