First of all, I apologize for being, for the most part, inactive on my site for the past week or so. It's that time of year when everyone seems to be stressed, overworked, and tired. I am not immune to this, even though I think I am sometimes!
Second of all, I wanted to share two AMAZING videos with you. When my brother forwarded "Fresh Guacamoli" to me, I wasn't sure what to expect. After watching, I was hooked.
These videos highlight creative thinking, something I encourage my students to practice and value. I would use the clips before an activity that may require students to think outside the box or to use symbols to illustrate their thoughts/feelings. Those particular assignments seem to be the hardest for students to complete. I often get questions like: "What is the right way to do this?" or "What should I do?"
Check out videos like these and MORE on my YouTube channel.
