The Pure Unadulterated Joy of Paper....

Ahhhhh......paper, paper, paper....
On Friday we were able to get our hands on a some soon to be recycled paper. How much you ask? Enough paper to make Dunder Mifflin jealous. You may also ask, "what did we do with this paper", well we threw it at each other......DUH!

My favorite part is Francisco pegging Cendy with the whole stack of papers...very nice!

On Fridays we reward our students with activity time. Students earn this time through their work, effort, and behavior during the week. This week we used a team building activity that included paper. Students were put into groups and asked to build a tower as high as possible using only paper.

After we finished with the towers students were given 30 seconds to release all their rage towards homework on this poor unsuspecting pile of paper. As you can see, they had an "OK" time.

Fantastic! What a great idea at the end to the allow students the 'fun time' with the 'paper rage'! Awesome that it was video'd as well as its a great visual to see... I can't wait till New Zealand School starts (still another three weeks) to share this site with my students!

Careful showing this to your students Mr. Webb, a mutiny might insue afterwards....
My students are missing your blog, they have been asking "whats new with the tamaki guy?"
Can't wait to see your new work.

I am a grade 6 student from Hafford, SK,Canada. We should have an activity Friday too. It would be fun. Of course one of us would go crazy and destroy the school. Oh well, it would still be fun.
