Attempting a 30 day challenge…thanks to Julie for passing along Anne ‘ s challenge.
It seems these last few weeks of school are hectic… I often fall back in to my trench of old habits and shift in to survival mode.
This year, I am hoping Anne ‘s challenge will hold me accountable to ending on a high note.
It’s important to connect with our students, for them to know we buy-in to their education and progress. This year there’s a particular student who stops by my room everyday, sometimes twice a day. In the past couple of weeks, I shared 2048 with them. Yesterday, this is the screen they shared with me…
What I appreciate most was their curiosity…is there a highest tile? If so, what would it be? Why? They arrived at a conclusion of 2^16 with some good reasoning.
I walk away from the conversation proud…they feel accomplished in that they beat their teacher at 2048. But more so, they wondered about the math behind the game.
Pretty amazing, huh?
