Have you ever wondered what the cultural celebrations in Peru are like? El Salvador? Norway? I know a class of 5th graders who will be able to answer these questions later this month.
Practical problem solving before an extended thanksgiving break. Perfect 🙂
Have you ever seen a third grader with a cardboard alligator? In a refrigerator? With a clay puppet? With a full Italian meal on a tray? I saw it all during narrative poem presentations today in a third grade class.
A worthy use of our time, interesting to hear the kids react to stories that speak to the idea of tolerance, kindness, and understanding.
Interested in what 1st graders do on thanksgiving? I learned what some of these kids do first, next, then, last. Juicy turkey? You bet. Delicious dinner? Check. Sequencing is such an important skill and it is great to see these foundations at work this morning.
Have you ever read a love letter from a magnet? Check out the student examples outside Ms. Cornejo’s door for some great reads. A fantastic example of writing across the curriculum. Language arts lessons in Science? You bet!
This is what I love to see. Let’s start with the set up, SMART board wall-mounted and a overhead mounted projector that allows full movement around the board. Notice who is touching the board..the student! The teacher in this picture is in a coaching role which is ideal. Three cheers for our awesome computer lab.
