Mother to Beat Challege

Frazier's staff members took on the Mother to Beat Challenge in which they bowled with cantaloupes in a healthy bowling challenge. Our 2 teachers, Ms. H and Ms. S are rolled in in their selective chairs to the theme of "Rocky." Our students are on the side prepared for this challenge, their job is to track score which includes their math curriculum. And in the end of each round (3 rounds) the students have to do jumping jacks for the total number of pins the staff knock down. The teacher with the earliest due date got to go first, Ms. H with July 30th and then Ms. S with July 31st. In the end the students had to do 17 jumping jacks for Ms. H and 23 jumping jacks for Ms S. Both teachers received a bowl of grapes, but our winner Ms. S received a Fuel Up to Play 60 Prize Pack.

How did you accomplish your goals?

We accomplished our goals by including the math curriculum for the students. And having an interactive activity for Frazier's Staff Members.

How do you plan to make this Play last during the school year and beyond?

Just by having the cantaloupe bowling challenge it created a relaxed atmosphere for the students and staff members because our participants were very nervous when entering the ally. And this will definitely make it easier for future challenges.

What improvements have you seen at your school?

We have seen the students perceive the teachers other than them in their learning environment which produces them to build a better relationship with the staff members at Frazier.
