May 21 - MS Gr. 8 Moving Up Dance - 6 pm - 8 pm
The two moves I learned were new twists on old dances. We all know the Cupid Shuffle - but did you know that now after you turn - you kick - and as you are raising your leg - you clap under your lifted leg and THEN touch the ground? I had no idea. I tried it a few times, but my old legs would only let me practice my new moves twice :-)
The other move that I learned was The Running Man. The way that I learned about this dance was the funniest of it all. DJ Drago was on fire! The song My Boo came on and the children went crazy. Their little legs started moving, but they were not going very far. I looked to my left and to my right in wonder before turning to a few teachers and asking, "What is that?" After chuckling a bit - they told me that it was The Running Man Challenge. I couldn't believe my eyes. We used to do the running man when I was younger - no comment :-) The children were happy to show me how it's done. Take a look at the videos below - first the video that reminds me so much of one of our colleagues (Can you guess who?) and then an appearance on Ellen of the two students who created the dance. Take a close listen - you'll get a chuckle out of how they started.

"2" Tech Tips to Try
Tech Tip of the week - Grade everything in one place.
After you create your class and students submit work to you. Click the three lines button in the top left of Classroom and select “Work” at the top. Here, you’ll find all of the assignments for all of your classes in one place. Work your way down the list and get on top of everything in one spot.
Give it a try. Set up a class with a colleague and test out the features if you're thinking about using it next year. You'll never go back to paper grading again!
