To support the kids who wanted to have that extra chance for review, I took a page out of @CoffeCue's playbook and spin it to meet the needs of kids. Why not have a cup of coffee with kids instead of adults?
"You are here because you want to be, and not because you have to be. Make this meaningful for you. Pick a topic that you want to review and make something that we can hang around campus to remind you before the test. I'll help you out as needed, but it's up to you to decide the topic and what you're using to create it. Go"
I'm pretty sure almost every "school rule" was being broken during this event:
- dress code was definitely not being enforced
- cell phones were being used
- kids (and I) were listening to music
- students were out of their seats
- students were eating in class (fruit & granola bars)
Once we finished up, the attendees got onto wifi photo transfer to send me all of the screenshots from the day. I printed up each of the pictures, we hung them near where the kids will be testing, and were done. All in all, the session lasted 2 and a half hours and it was nothing short of impressive. I'm just ashamed of myself for not doing this sooner, assuming that nobody would show up to a Saturday session.
