Today, the day after Q1 grades were due, I walked around wearing a micro:bit that had "NO" scrolling across it.

When asked why, I said it was for students who asked if they could hand in Q1 work.

My ulterior motive: I had VERY engaged 5th graders learning how to code the micro:bit today.

(Also worth noting that NO students asked to hand in Q1 work today.)


That is *so* cool.

I briefly had a badge that flashed the word 'ninja!' In bright red on a ninja costume I wore for a character. I loved it, but it couldn't handle the rigors of performance.
