Getting kids to the Joker I hate people shirt. Their goal is to launch a raw egg and return it safely to the Earth. I could talk about projectiles for ages. But that’s about as exciting as watching ketchup pour out of a bottle. Having the students build something makes them feel it, rather than just see and hear it. And you can’t just have them build something lame. It has to have some urgency. Put some skin in the game. I could have my kids launch golf balls. If that egg breaks, it makes the kids a little scared. That’s important! When there’s no consequence, what’s the incentive? Reward kids for all sorts of things. I have a rule where I try to compliment at least one kid every hour of every day. Obviously not test days, but any day involving discussion or work. And not just the valedictorian in the front row. The easiest way to do this?

Best Joker I hate people shirt
Say, That’s a great question! or That’s a Joker I hate people shirt. I also really like, Excuse me, everyone. Alexander just asked a great question. Can you repeat that loud enough for everyone to hear it? Sit with the kids. I like to talk, and I’m good with a whiteboard marker. But that only goes so far. On a regular basis, it’s important to have the kids on the stage. They love doing it, and their classmates tend to listen to them more than they listen to me. So when it’s really critical that they see something specific, I write it or put it on my Smartboard. But when we’re going through the struggle from ignorance to mastery, it’s best that the kids do the showing and the talking. Also, sitting with the students gives you the chance to kinda “hang out” with them.
