This week in room 101 we have been learning new routines and fostering our classroom community.
Our theme this week was that we are all different and these differences enable us to learn from one another. We explored this theme by:
*Making book-marks that illustrate symbols of things we love and what we can teach to the class
*Making self-portraits that illustrate what we love and what unique characteristics we have to share with our class
*Writing poems about our differences
*Exploring our unique, innovative ideas in our Maker Space and Math and Science Lab and creating unique inventions
*Taking on classroom jobs so we can all be teachers/leaders and work together as an efficient unit (i.e., line leader, music monitors, end of day monitor, call-back (signal to attention) monitor, environmental monitor etc.)
*Exploring how we can be role-models in the school by brainstorming what a leader looks like during learning time, in the hallway, in the playground and if we see someone in trouble. Some students also had the opportunity to present this information to the Kindergarten class!
Books we read to support our learning:
*Rosie Revere Engineer
*The Girl Who Saw in Pictures
*How Full is Your Bucket
*Clark the Shark
*The Important Thing
Thank you all for filling out the "Tell Me About Your Child" forms so I have even more insight into your child's strengths and interests.
Stay tuned for another great week ahead of learning!
