I'm making posters for next year. I realized my class rules were not going to be student centered. So I changed them!
I learned a long time ago that these aren't class rules, they are "essential agreements." We should write our essential agreements at the beginning of the year. That is, students should make behavior "I" statements and we should put them up as a class. I might add those and put them around my poster. Here is an example of that

We finished final exams and still have two more periods left in the year. I decided to show the Oscar nominated film the Imitation Game. It's very hard to find a math movie that is relevant to students. I was so excited when I saw this in the theater last fall. I kept praying it was classroom friendly and I was relieved to see it was PG 13.
This morning I decided to google "Imitation Game Activity" and found this site:
I tweaked the worksheet and found other websites that will allow me to change the message. Maybe next year I will add my own custom class message.
I also thought that next year I can do a cross curricular mini unit with AP/US History or History of WII class.
I found a small resource online for that:
We also had a breakfast themed party! Great idea for a class that starts at the beginning of the day.
We had donuts, bagels, mcmuffins, bacon, fruit, cereal, OJ, and milk. What a great party! I heard it made it onto snapchat (I let them take pictures of our buffet.)
