I like to joke with my students that I taught Jimmy everything he knows about playing quarterback because I played football every day at lunch recess with him. In this video, he's kind enough to allow my delusions to continue...
A Super Bowl 49 Ring!!! How cool!
And finally, former students Jackie Kemph and Jenny Vliet are continuing to make their 5th grade teacher proud:
The students in our class have decided, without any influence from me, that they would like to do a few activities together as a class. Here are the activities:
1. A whole-class Variety Show act, which you have already received information from Sherry Brand on (via email). I will be supporting them by supervising practices during lunch recesses, as they schedule rehearsals. I am working hard not to interfere, but rather ask questions that allow them to think through the steps themselves. As of today, they are playing two songs (Little Einstein's Remix, John's Cena's theme song, & Turn Down for What) and choreographing a dance that goes with them. That may change as they move forward. Please let your child know if you prefer they don't participate in the act. (Some are volunteering to be behind-the-scenes support, rather than perform on stage.)
2. One student is organizing a weekend game at Pioneer based on the Hunger Games. I am NOT affiliated with this as it takes place off of school grounds and outside of school hours, but I'm proud of them for including everyone in their preparation. If you don't want your child to participate in this activity, simply tell them so. Please don't coordinate that through me, though. This reminds me of when I was a kid inviting my peers to play kickball or football after school, and I want to be supportive of students organizing their outside-of-school activities! Here is the link to the Google Doc signup with teams and instructions (your child needs to be signed in to Google to be able to view it): https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1a4YjEMCaWtAqX9S0ZM2EuF1lwXgcM4_UD__fv_Bu9RU/edit?ts=56bb8777#gid=0
