I am having such a good time getting to know all of your children! We had two birthday's in September. Both chose to create a birthday poster to teach their classmates about themselves. This was a great opportunity for students to experience sharing something meaningful with the whole group. Our audience members also asked questions and made comments. The poster sharing was wrapped up with a round of Happy Birthday for each birthday boy! (I have to work on my photography skills....sorry about that!)
Also this morning, I taught the students how to "turn and talk" to their neighbor. During "share" time at morning meeting the students took a few minutes to have one on one conversations. The guiding question was "What is your favorite meal that you eat outside of school?"
