If you can’t beat em…join ’em.
My students love to play poker. Mexican poker, in which you throw out the 8s, 9s, and 10s. No one knows why.
I have a first period PE class. Last session, we did Yoga. This session, we walk. Today? We played poker. Everytime you pass me, you get a card. Best hands won a prize. I used the whole deck. Some students even ran, in order to get an extra card.
Winning hand? four nines.
This is how creative you can be in California. …whatever works. 🙂
