Today is Monday and my classroom, again, is empty. This time it's because the students are on holiday and I am meeting with parents for a Teacher/Parent Conference Day. It's all good!
For the students, this week, we will be wrapping up the Research/Work portion of our first unit and moving into Create/Critique, where they actually put together their projects, applying all the information they've taken in thus far. We will also take our first assessment. It will be a formative assessment, meaning I will be taking their pulse and seeing what they've learned as they've researched. I hope to show them the importance of bringing their learning back to their team and sharing it, as well as the importance of hearing that shared information and taking responsibility for it. The end result should be a better idea of what they need to know for their summative, which I will give them on Tuesday of next week.
In the midst of all of this, we've gone digital, so expect an invitation soon to join Google Classroom and Kidblog. I'd also like to have you on Remind. If you have any questions or need anything from me, don't hesitate to get in touch.
Have a great week!
