This assessment was fun for the children, and I now have a better idea of what the students are understanding and what I need to reteach.
Without further ado, here are the pictures from today's "surgery:"
I set up the classroom while the students were at P.E.
Prepping for surgery:
I had "hospital sounds" playing in the background while the students prepped. I had the sound of a beating heart playing while they worked.
This year, I had the students use tape instead of glue. This seemed to work a little better, though some of the students had a tough time with the tape. The glue, however, was very sticky and made the papers soggy last time. If/when I do the activity again, I'll stick with tape.
The children even stayed focused when we had a friendly visit from the administrators.
These kids were completely engaged!
"Is he going to make it?!"
Whew! We were all so happy that the surgeries were successful!
