This week was an especially difficult one. A teacher and dear friend passed away on Tuesday, November 1. These students knew this teach and so I incorporated my activity into a bow tie, something Russell wore regularly. My original plan was a square piece of black paper the students would draw and cut shapes out of showing the positive and negative together. I changed the square to a bow tie, which caused a few issues with the curved edges, however the students managed to make them work just fine. A tribute to our friend. Rest in peace Mr. Paxton, though you are gone, you will never be forgotten. Love and miss you.
