How about Dance For All … partnered with CS For All. As Together is Better!
MAY 1ST 2019 – Motivated from the Winds of Time celebration at HCE where they have a May Pole Dance.
May 4th 2019 Aldine ISD Tech Fest. Play Bee-Gees You Should be Dancing while watching the video. And then continue listening to “Staying Alive” as that is what teachers are trying to do in the classroom. When they should be spending time dancing not doing test prep. As memorizing things like math facts is better in a song. Problem solving is better when building with hands. And assessment should be products of learning like Morgan and Kylee’s poster presentation.
