I tried out a new look I think it will help kick my creativity into gear. Plus, I feel like my kids are needing a creativity kick. So I thought first let me address the problem with me first. Step one: re-evaluate my lessons. Are the kids engaged? Are they understanding the activity? What things can I change with my routine.
Step two: If lesson is okay, then what can I do to make the students more interested in completing the project?
Step three: Stop stressing, recognize the good that is happening and fix what is not working.
I am tweaking some lessons and hoping that maybe it is just the pre-Thanksgiving, ready for Christmas mood that has set in.
