Genius Hour #geniushour #savmp #teamkid

Genius Hour for Elementary kids is so much more than just #geniushour. I can't tell you how many of our students and parents have approached me before and after presentations with amazingly positive comments and enthusiasm. 

- it's amazing
- it's Common Core
- it's fun
- it's collaborative
- it gets kids moving around
- it allows teachers to see students in a different light
- it's NOT worksheets
- it makes kids super excited for school
- it allows kids to work on their presentation skills
- it allows kids to problem solve on so many different levels
- it allows kids to look at problems or ideas in a different way

Some Tweets below from our latest round of Genius Hour presentations in 5th grade last Friday, enjoy!
