Day 8 Prompt: If you could be given the option to never sleep and also never be tired, would you take it if it meant you'd also never dream again?
Decisions. Decisions. An option to relinquish sleep or the ability to dream. Really?!? I'm a huge fan of sleep...especially a Sunday afternoon nap. But not at the expense of being able to dream! No contest. I gain energy from being creative. So being able to dream about lessons and create fun practice activities for my students is critical...definitely more so than sleep.
Here's an algebra activity that my students completed in class yesterday:
We used these cards to quiz each other as review before taking a concept check on exponent rules. The goal is to pair up with classmates to simplify the expressions and then move on to another classmate. We try to repeat as many times as possible in four minutes. I love creating games for my students. And even if I had all day every day to create games, I wouldn't have a single idea without the ability to dream. Sleep is overrated! Although...I may change my mind as the first week back from vacation seems to be moving at a snail's pace. :)
So what would you choose...no need to sleep or no ability to dream? Please share in the comment section below. I would love to know the reasoning behind your selection!
