We've been working on multi-step problem solving and I just love watching the kids head to the T.A.C.K. Board to check on their communication. They head over together and look at all the parts of the chart to see that they've communicated their understanding clearly and completely. Check out the heads together! Awesome!
Today we had a visiting theatre company of retired teachers perform Charlotte's Web for our primary students. We JUST finished reading the book as a class read-aloud yesterday, so the timing couldn't be more perfect. They did a fantastic job!
With new iPads come new iPad rules!!
I couldn't resist the Melonheadz clip art for these. If you'd like to grab a copy you can now find these FREE - exclusively in my TpT store!
Today was a release day to participate in planning for my collaborative inquiry. I had a "Guest Teacher" in my classroom, and was determined to make the day run smoothly, because it often doesn't on days like this. I put together a simple reflection for my students - this sat on their desks all day long, and the children were expected to complete it prior to leaving for French at the end of the day.
One not-so-awesome thing today was that this happened:
The ENTIRE thing ended up on the floor today. I blame gravity. I think it was the culprit. I'm clinging to the hope that it wasn't my lunch helpers tossing things around when I wasn't in the room! (I did once find them playing Twister on my carpet - very clever, if you ask me!)
The day WAS a great opportunity to dig into the math resources I mentioned last week, however, and I had lots of time to do some strategic planning for the weeks to come and that's AWESOME!!
