Monday I introduced a new tool to my Big Bad Bloggers enrichment class at Four Corners Montessori, and they really loved it! I’ve had trouble engaging them to do more than play mp3s the entire 45 minute session, so it was nice to see them actually DOING something. The enrichment course is tough for me because I run it in a totally open workshop format – which means some kids rarely do anything I consider productive.
