If your house was on fire . . .

At Biology and Blueberries, a science teacher’s Do Now: If your house was on fire, what three items would you grab and why?

Has a Hugging Problem: I would take my iPod, my phone, and I guess my mom.

Hands Down Smartest, Most Responsible Kid: I would grab a fire extinguisher to put the fire out. I wouldn’t need to grab anything else.

HDSMRK will go far.

B&B has another post asking for advice on how to get students to work independently without asking the teacher to lead them through every step of the directions.
