Community Post: You Wish Your Bar Mitzvah Was This Fabulous
My 3rd grade teacher did this. It was more of a rain forest theme and she had all us work on it, and when we did the rain forest unit we all had to make a specific animal. Part of our test was telling the class about the animal, what it does, and then we had to place it in the "correct part of the rain forest" we made together. It was so fun!
One of the teachers I work with suggested this idea at our first faculty meeting this year and I thought it was so smart! When kids are pulled for speech, OT, reading groups, etc., they put the cup on their desk to say they are out of the room. It makes it easy to glance around the room and see who has been pulled.
