a perfect day

Once a week I have block period with my students, 80 minutes with them to think, to talk, to play.  Each week I try to ask them something about themselves, a question of the day.  It helps me know and understand them better, to make that connection of shared experiences that allows me to try to motivate and inspire them to do better.  This week I asked them to help me build a perfect day.  Each person was able to contribute one thing to our perfect day.  It could be an activity, a thing, an idea, whatever they wished.  We recorded it on the board, a picture of some sixteen year olds' perfect day... 


  1. 72 with no humidity? That IS the perfect day.

  2. No kidding... I'm pretty sure I don't actually need any of these other things...
