Day 76... Collaboration Day!
Today was a Collaboration Day, which means the students had a late start and the teachers had meetings for the first two hours of the day. I worked with the neighboring science teacher to prepare our Forensic Science course that will be starting up in January. However, since the students have a late start, that means we lose one class period of the day and since we teach AP Stat every hour, that means that Collaboration is usually a chance for a review day. Today we practiced on some previous AP problems... well, until 6th hour at least...
Because by 6th hour, all my students were capable of doing was standing at the window and staring at this:
No matter how many times I tried to settle them down, they continued to find reasons to go to the window... I guess I can't blame them, it's been a few years since they've had a snow day at all, so the thought of snow and sleet is fascinating to them. This is mostly sleet so far, so we had an impromptu discussion on how to drive in bad weather as my class size slowly dwindled from early dismissals. :)
I'm sure they are all wearing their pj's inside out tonight in hopes of a snow day tomorrow!
