|ANGRY BIRDS in my classroom?!?|
On Monday one of the students started building a "tower" and then another one a little bit further away. He then had some coloured blocks and started throwing them to knock over the towers. I do not prefer the students to throw things in the classroom (understandably) so I walked over from helping another student and asked him to stop throwing blocks please. He said "I have to." Obviously needing an explanation as to why he felt the NEED to throw, I asked the big question "Why?". He answered "because I am playing angry birds!" As I looked at what he had made, one of the structures looked like a level of the game and the one "tower" did resemble a sling shot. He proceeded to show me his "pile" of angry birds.
I have come to a consistent realization that the Kindergarten classroom that I grew up in only slightly resembles the one that I teach in today. Change is good, I just hope I can keep up ;)
|round blocks are "bomb birds" then the coloured ones are like the game (or so I was told)|
