Today, 8 days later, some kids are still working on the notes packet (the ones I made screencasts for) and haven't gotten to any other assignments. Think they'll hit tomorrow's deadline?
I'm wondering if I should have made some intermediate deadlines in there... last Friday for the packet and MathXL (which would basically be one section/day) and then activities this week? I was trying to give them the opportunity to pace themselves, but apparently some students weren't able to do that.
I thought this was interesting... these 4 kids were all working on 3 different activities. One was on MathXL, two were constructing polyhedra, and one was working on the packet (he has been out for a concussion and missed several days). This was what the whole class was like today!
Today's keeper of a quote: "This is actually kind of fun!" (in regards to some of the activities that I let them choose from)
