As a k-12 prospective teacher keeping the students interest, while learning, and being innovative is quite challenging. My video blog is a spin off from an already existing dancing game which as a prospective physical educator keeps the students active while challenging them academically in school. How the activity would be played is that there is 9 designated box areas on the card board and the students have a chance to write down the topic or subjects in school which are least favorable for them. upon writing the subjects down they would place the cute out squares onto the cardboard then i would number each square 1 to 9. While the music is playing or i count down from 30 on a stop watch i will call out the numbered square to be stepped on in a rapid pace to keep students physically active and focusing on the next box to step in. If they make a mistake of stepping in the wrong box 3 or more times, it would be mandatory for students to write a 3 page paper on the subject they will have to improve upon. If they make a mistake in stepping in wrong box 2 times students will have to write a page in a half, and 1 time they will only have to explain to me for 5 minutes how they will improve upon the subject they selected as the least favorable in school.
let me know what you guys think of the concept…..
