Gearing Up for FLOW 2015

This week I had the chance to talk with the 7th graders at Bath Middle School and Woolwich Central School about FLOW.  It was GREAT.  I brought in some gear for them to see and did an activity that talked about the importance of safe risk-taking and getting into the "learning zone."  The kids were attentive, energetic, enthusiastic and had many excellent questions.

Based on feedback from FLOW 2014, there are are a few changes to this year's trip:

  • Each student will get to choose up to three kids who they would like to have in their group.  They will be guaranteed to have at least one of those friends with them.
  • Our goal is to have student groups set before the end of the school year.
  • The lessons on FLOW will most likely be centered on narrative writing.  The lessons will be more flexible meaning that groups will be less crunched for time.   
Come back frequently to look for updates and don't hesitate to get in touch with me directly.

Best Wishes,
