The Ben Franklin Friday Focus
December 12, 2014
The cold and snow from Thursday was a perfect reminder that the Holiday season is fast approaching. This is the perfect time to take a leap and try something that you have been curious about and wanting to try.
Use the few days before break to plan for and to try something that will challenge you, stretch you and make you better. Whether it is joining a Twitter chat, using a new tool, or trying one (or more) of the "HOOKS" listed between pages 83-141 in Teach Like a Pirate, try something!
It is just a matter of taking that first step. The worst case scenario is that you will know what doesn't work and move on, the best case scenario is that you will do something that you didn't think that you could and you may even find something that gets your students even more excited about school and learning!
Each day is what we make it; have fun!
