History badges are not ready. Rough start to the day at home. I wish I was more prepared. I tell myself - roll with it. I just need something for a few minutes. I want to get some momentum started. I grab a history badge (an idea from a mentor). I put it on and share - we are all going to become history detectives. I then ask, What do you think a history detective is or does? My only thought was to have a verbal discussion. After a couple of thoughts shared, I jump out of my chair. I dash to the cupboard for some paper as I envision making a web. I just needed to ask the children a question to find our momentum. A simple preparation with big results and guidance for our learning.
