I’ve decided to try bell ringers this year, and have stolen/modified Fawn’s format. I’m hoping it helps get students in their chairs on time (instead of just sort of in the room) and gets us focused. Today was our first reflective writing, and since there was very little by means of instruction this week, I borrowed Pam’s getting to know you questions.
Their answers to the first question “If Math was a food, what would it be? Explain” were just too good not to share.
- Math would be a lemon because it’s sour and it’s only good on certain things and at certain times.
- If math were a food it would be tofu, because tofu can taste good in some dishes, but bad in others. Just like how math can be a lot of fun in some units and hard in others.
- If math was a food, it would be Chinese.
- Math would be some weird kinda hard Russian candy I had before. At first the candy tastes a bit weird but after a little while it tastes pretty good. In relation to math, math is a bit hard at the start but once you understand the outcome it’s good.
- Something spicy. I like spicy food, but not if it’s really spicy. It burns!
- If Math were a food there would be lots of missing textbooks.
- I think it would be a sandwich because there’s an infinite amount of things you could put in a sandwich.
- If math were a food I think it would be noodles because they can either be hard or soft depending on how you cook them.
- Creme Brulee. Because it’s decadent and takes awhile to master.
- Watermelon. I love watermelon but sometimes too much is gross.
- A taco because stuff is always being added to it and stuff always falls out.
- Pork chops with asparagus. I eat that stuff up easily.
Not too shabby for the 4th day of grade 9!
