My class is finishing up our Pizza Party Unit this week!! We have had so much fun using a pizza theme in math (data, fractions, money) writing, and science. The kids got to make their own pizzas on Friday, they had so much fun! This week, they are writing persuasive letters to our principal, taking a stand on if he/she believes it is or is not a good idea for the principal to order all the second grade teachers a pizza for lunch next week. All of my kids thought it was a good idea, but one did not. Hummm....I wonder if my principal will be persuaded by the majority of my class or not?
When brainstorming "good idea" vs. "bad idea" reasons, the kids gave great thought!! Here are a few of my favorite...all thought of by students.
*Teachers need a break.
*Teachers have to spend their own money on the students.
*Teachers word hard and stand up all day.
*It is a waste of money.
*The teachers don;t have time to eat lunch........(my thought: THAT'S FOR SURE!)
"Teachers make great thieves"...ever heard that quote? It is a very true! Most of our great ideas are "stolen" from someone else. Not all ideas on this blog are mine. I try to give credit where credit is due. However, if you find that an idea should have been given credit but wasn't, please let me know.
