Students shared their homework pieces this so we could get to know each other better. Wow! What amazing kids! If your child was unable to bring their project in, please send it next week. A few projects can be seen on the Student Showcase tab of our website.
We also worked on Depth & Complexity centers related to our Biomes unit.
We learned about Grit and discussed how we want to be Gritty and develop a Growth Mindset. View the 6 minute video we discussed.
The first week of classes is behind us! The students are learning the routines and jumping into the biomes unit right away.
We began with a creativity exercise.
Grades 1-2 worked on originality and elaboration completing a Savannah tree transformation.
Grades 3-5 worked on fluency and flexibility of ideas naming birds then categorizing them.
I shared information about myself, the classroom routines, our unit, and the expectations for the year.
We painted nature flags depicting an insect, plant, animal, or a nature scene on Muslim cotton squares. These will be displayed in our hallway soon.
We discussed the homework activities.
Grades 1-2 are to create a mask of an insect, plant, or animal which represents their personality or characteristics.
Grades 3-5 are to create a surfboard with items that tell about them.
I introduced the centers that students will complete in the next 2-3 weeks related to our unit.
We reviewed the day's activities.
**Please make sure that students bring their supplies to class. They should have a binder, dividers, a flashdrive, and a spiral.**
