Yesterday, the day before our February break, we gathered all of the the sixth graders together to begin discussing Quidditch season at our school. Yes, we play Quidditch and it is both exciting (all paths lead to a sixth grade tournament in April) and frustrating (all brains seem to fixate on the tournament). The key for us teachers is to use the excitement for learning, and we do all sorts of art, writing, math and other curricular activities.
So, what is our game of Quidditch? Glad you asked. Last year, I created this video that shows the way we play our game. And I wrote a song about Quidditch, too, called The Q Rap.
Take a look at the video.
Peace (on the field),
