Sharing thoughts on google drive.
Visiting teachers from Vancouver stopped by our class for an hour after recess. I was very proud of all the students, who talked to the visitors, in their ability to articulate what has made a difference in their learning. Even though the teachers wanted to see how technology was intertwined in the learning, they left being so very impressed with students using terms like learning intentions, criteria, and peer feedback. Students have truly come to understand that it is about the process of learning and that there are strategies that can help them improve each day.
The math measurement projects were submitted today. Their creativity continues to amaze me from 2D drawings, to model displays, to design layouts using Sweet Home 3D on the computers. Awesome .
The blogging for Book Club has continued to improve. There is evidence of higher level thinking through their connections and questions. If you have time I would suggest you spend 15 minutes reading some of the blogs, they are wonderful. Book Club
1) LA - complete formal response (combined journal) for tomorrow. This is your draft for peer editing. Please have it ready to go prior to school so we do not need to spend time waiting at the printer.
- read and blog, remembering to respond to those who have responded to you or look to get a conversation going.
2) Science - think of your big question and create sub questions that will help direct your research tomorrow.
I am a grade 7 teacher who has been teaching in the Surrey School District for over 28 years. I love to read, garden, walk, and spend time with family, friends and my golden retriever Kona.
