I had to share what's going on with the box project outside my classroom. It's very cool to see them being made in other environments. This summer, I ran a workshop in Minneapolis where ONE person showed up. But that one person was the one who was supposed to be there. The one who showed up is Dr. Nicole Muth, Elementary/Middle School Department Chair at Concordia University. Nicole also runs their student teacher program. Nicole and I took a selfie together at the end of our one-on-one workshop, because it was so serendipitous that she was the one who showed up. That photo is below.
Nicole recently sent me some photos of the work her student teachers are doing with the box project in their placement schools. How cool is that to see the project happening in other schools? That's my goal for students. Photos are shown below too.
I'm speaking about the box project at a conference in Ohio this Friday - supposed to be 27 people signed up...I'll take a selfie of that too! And hopefully the box project will get into more schools.
Throwing in a cool song too.
