Boys and girls separated

We tried something new today in class-we divided the boys and girls into 2 different classes. I had the 23 girls for the first half of the day and then the 14 boys for the 2nd half of the day. There were only a few students who said they didn’t really like it-the rest of them loved having it that way. Our school actually did this a few years ago with the 6th graders, 7th graders, and I think the 8th graders. My daughter was in the 6th grade class that was divided that way-she liked it because she didn’t feel as self conscious when speaking out and participating! 🙂

I think the participation in both classes increased today-I liked it. We’ll see how it goes for the rest of this week. 🙂
