Back at it! But, I was ready. The kids are really cute and fun; and we're doing a school-wide, week-long, challenge-based learning experiment. I'm team-teaching with three other teachers, and we have a group of 30 kids. In order to ease transitions, one rhythmically-gifted instructor proposed a call-and-response chant.
It's theoretically easy - I say J-Term; You say Challenge! J-Term! Challenge! J-Term! Challenge!
Then we can change around the second word as we like. So, J-Term! Team! or J-Term! Think!
But, the rest of us teachers had some serious problems getting this right. My biggest mistake was "I say J-Term; you say Challenge! Challenge!" I did that like three or four times.
Eventually, I mastered this, but it requires a little dancing in order to remind myself of the rhythm. Pretty sure it makes me look even more ridiculous. But, I'm going for it. I mean, why not?
