... and Brains ...
I am always thinking of new and exciting ideas to keep the interest level high in the classroom. A new gimmick or technique keeps the students engaged in their learning. The classroom is continuously evolving.
As I was driving to school one day, I heard the jock on the radio talking about a Brain Buffet. It got my wheels turning, and I thought it might be a fun name for our literacy and/or math work stations. I mean, we have a variety (buffet) of learning centers that are great for our brains!
Well ... I googled "Brain Buffet" and found that it is the name of a bizarre video game in which you are a zombie searching for brains to consume! Not what I wanted for our classroom...
So I thought a little more and came up with this idea!!!
So now we have our Brain Building Buffet time each morning! The kids love the name and the centers!
