Deep Thoughts Are a Work of Art!

During my daily browse through Twitter, I was struck with inspiration. I thought of a way to re-purpose the post-it notes that were being used during my lessons.

I started collecting them, assessing the work, and then putting them on my cupboards without any apparent plan.

Then I waited for the kids to notice.  Some started asking questions after a few days, others took a full two weeks to notice! It was fun to listen to them predict and argue about what I was making.

And the days we didn’t use post-its? Well, they gave me an ear full. They loved the novelty and sustained predicting, and they kept on me to assess their work and add it to the picture.

When Pacman was completed, they immediately wanted to know what I was making next.  I told them, “We’re doing a contest for student-designed murals.” They can’t wait!

Any ideas of other cool things to do with post-its?
