Warning - this post has no educational value - okay I threw something in at the very end that you could use in your classroom - but 98% of this post is not educational.
I am linking up with my bloggy friend Holly (hoping she doesn't kick me out of her party) for her Tried it Tuesday Linky. Be sure to stop by and check out all the awesome things people are trying in their classroom (or living room!).
Every where in teaching blog land people are sharing their goals for the summer and for next year (I did mine yesterday) and I have been reading them like crazy - I like reading what others hope to do, but I have not seen one person mention watching T.V. Am I the only teacher that is looking forward to watching T.V. Every summer my husband and I pick a series or 2 and watch entire seasons on DVD. This summer we are going to watch Breaking Bad - I don't know how we missed watching this series, we watch every other AMC series (and most of the HBO ones too!). I can't wait to get started on this series, I have heard so many great things.
Here are 3 series that I tried and loved and recommend to you!
What are you watching this summer? Do you have any suggestions for me (and my husband)?
If you read this far I do have a little teaching idea for you. It is using t.v. or movie clips as a prompt for a math inquiry lesson. You could use this clip from Big Bang Theory to teach about combinations.How many combinations are there in their version or Rock, Paper, Scissors.
