Working together to transition freshmen & transform schools from the bottom up!
Freshman Transition Network member and 9th grade math teacher, Kaitlin Nelson, shared the following post on Facebook today. I hope she doesn't mind me reproducing it here on the Freshman Transition Network, but I couldn't resist. It's so simple yet reflects a profound understanding of young people. (Actually, of people in general)
Want to get 9th graders to come in for extra help solving equations??
Just make yummy yummy homemade almond butter, slice apples, and serve it to them. The word spreads and they flock in for treats ... and then they sit quietly and work on their math problems. Amazing!!
The secret is..... Make it fun and they will come!
