I love a snarky teen and I don't believe they make them any snarkier than middle schoolers. Not quite "big" kids, not quite "little" kids. I worked with them right, smack in the middle of hormone hysteria end of year crazies.
It was truly a privilege to share something I love with kids who took it to entirely new levels of creativity. Although it was an independent project, while working you can't help but help out your classmates. Who needed a specific letter, word, or picture? Someone always came to the rescue with it.
I am looking forward to bringing this to anyone who wants the opportunity to do something a little out of the box with their students. This was paid for from a grant from the PTA, so it is something I can bring nearly anywhere! I'm so excited!
I am fingerprinted in NYS so I'm OK to go into the schools. (That is as a result of the hot second I substituted in a kindergarten classroom and remembered almost immediately why I KNEW teaching wasn't a full time dream of mine!)
I encourage you to look at some of my favorites HERE.
Note: They were all amazing.
Thanks to Maryann Zabbia who I met at Kacey's Shine On! Retreat in March for making this happen. She has two more planned for the summer - you can check them out by clicking on her name.
