Mr. Jonathan Kelly--in the flow. Photo by Ms. Baylee Clang
This picture is of a "reward" challenge for all the students who completed the vaccination protocols in our Zombie Nouns Unit (direct teaching videos with questions, a crossword and a quick quiz).
When I started this journey, I said I wanted my students to feel "flow" from the gamification of grammar. Flow was described in my previous posts as a mesmerizing state of being totally engaged in an experience. Because as I stated previously, in the wise words of my hiking buddy James in Nepal, "It's all about the experience, ain't it."
This photo is so rewarding for me. Mr. Kelly is in the throws of the flow and Ms. Clang captured that moment for my classroom.
I'm an 8th grade English teacher in Bellevue, Nebraska, and I'm excited about technology in the classroom.
