Thursday, Period 8. This is my prep time but I need to meet and plan with my Ramsizzle group. I was exhausted and stressed out. It was nice to know that there was an 8th grader amidst the super excited 7th graders. Jovan facilitated the planning. From objectives to schedule we are all set for the coming Rensizzle week. Now I need to invite a resource person and prepare for the trip.

This has been an awesome week. The students were very proud of their work. They bonded and have developed common ties with each other in doing the task given to them. The school loved their final product/movie and they have been receiving positive comments. They feel like celebrities/actors. I do enjoyed this week as I was able to inspire them to be the best of what they want to be.
