Thinking and Linking by Joanne Jacobs
FreeRice is a very cool site. It’s practically addictive.
Via middle-school teacher Robert Wright, who says his students love to answer questions and donate rice to the poor.
So if I don’t answer questions, they won’t give away rice?
This sounds “off” to me.
Are kids supposed to feel good about themselves because they think that by answering questions, *they* are doing some good?
My kids are suspect of the whole rice thing, but it is a great way to review grammar.
I was going to tell my kids about the site but they already knew. Darn, there goes my chance to look cool.
Students document how much rice they get with screen saves and cell phone pictures and I give them extra credit.
7000 grains of rice in one day is the record so far.
