Have you seen this video? If not, it is a must see! Seriously... before going any farther, WATCH!
So what would be your space jam? I just love this kid. I showed it to my second graders on Friday. Obviously they didn't get the "Robert Frost" and "Space Jam" references like I did, but they still got it. It's time to stop being boring, and start being awesome. They also came up with the fact that it's going to be a hard, bumpy road- but that you can't succeed without a few cuts and bruises. This video was a great reminder of why I became a teacher in the first place.. to helps kids through those bumps and bruises, to help them along the way, to be fun & innovative, and to inspire them to believe they can do whatever they want...as long as they put in some hard work. I encourage you to share this video with your teacher colleagues and maybe even share with your kids.. maybe ask them what their space jam is. What are they going to do to make the world awesome? :)
