That's what I call one of my 6th graders because he just can't SIT in his desk. He hovers. He floats. He perches like a bird in his seat - - - so he's my little Bird Man of Alcatraz.
He's fun, bright, and energetic.
Every year I assign a "Cell Project" in which my 6th graders have to create a model of a plant cell and one of an animal cell.
They've brought cell models made out of everything imaginable - - - candles, odds 'n ends from their dad's workshop, cakes, cookies, modeling clay, 2 liter soda bottles, pudding with fruit, and t-shirts.
But the Bird Man of Alcatraz is the FIRST to ever bring pizza cells!!!!
Of COURSE he got an "A"!!!
