I was so busy Monday morning with new visiting students, facilitating set-the-week meeting, and getting ready for our trip to Swing-a-ring that I didn’t get to blog about my weekly intentions. Despite that fact, I’m going to reflect on them now to the best of my ability.
Tuesday went as Tuesday usually does- fast and in a flurry of wikis and virtual travel around the globe. We also had an interesting philosophy discussion today about the origins of Halloween. We discussed how it was/is celebrated in other countries, as well as why humans choose to celebrate a “day of the dead” (i.e. is it really for the benefit of the dead or the living).
Wednesday and Thursday I played Chronology with @shadowjack and @timotree. I won a close battle against @timotree on Wednesday after @KingThanos and @shadowjack #attentionspanquit and #ragequit respectively.
On Thursday, some of the kids took a trip (organized by @jacobcb) to see Dracula: Untold. I stayed back and watched a documentary about Notch, Mojang, and the making of Minecraft (see it here: http://vimeo.com/96955900).
Today I did some work on the Star Wars group, including making my first meme and posting some of my favorite clips from the films:
Til next week agilillies!
