Sometimes You Just Have To Let The Students Have A #GoodTime #EdChat

My first and second hour had been working so hard in my class and others the past few weeks and I noticed they were burnt out. It is so frustrating to see kids who care so much about school be beaten down by the stress of school and teenage life.

We are in the home stretch and morale seems to be down across the board, so I thought it would be a good idea to remind the students and staff that it is going to be all right and that "It's always a good time" at Grosse Pointe South.

The directions were simple. Use this song and stay in the room. Everything else was up to them. I am very proud of the work they did and the responses from the staff after I shared the videos has been great. Please share the videos and leave comments for the kids. They would love it.

Giving up a couple of days for silliness is going to be huge dividends later in the year. How does your class have a "Good Time"? I would love to see other classes do their own versions. You have been challenged. :-)
