THIS IS AWESOME! Once students enter the room each day, the timer begins. The timer stops once lunch count/attendance is taken on the Smartboard, everybody's materials are out on their desk with their binder underneath the desk, and everyone is seated. Sixth grade students love competing to beat their previous time. The best part? I don't have to say a word. My students encourage everyone to follow expectations and get ready to go as fast as they can. by darla

If you have never seen this film, watch it now. Right now. And then show it to your students. This is what STEM is REALLY all about. The purpose of STEM is to create people like William Kamkwamba, the 14 year old boy (now a man) who built a windmill because he NEEDED it. Inspire your students to think about real world problems by introducing them to William. by katharine

Be sure to hold your pen at about a 45 degree angle, so that the side of the pen touches the page for thick strokes. Pull up & lighten your stroke by using the tip of the pen.
