Beautiful Oops!

Last week students learned the value of mistakes.  I encouraged each student to raise their hands in the air and shout, “Fantastic!” when they make a mistake.  Additionally, students traded their brand new composition notebooks and were allowed to make a mess on the first page.  The notebooks were returned to their owners and students had the opportunity to create something beautiful from the mess.
