Thank you to those parents who’ve been sending in photos to complement their child’s writing. I’m just waiting on a few more student writing submissions before beginning the layout so it’s not too late to send something along.
We’ve finished watching the five-part series by Class Dojo about Growth Mindset. (The link is here if you’d like to review the clips with your child.) We’ll now try to apply some of those ideas to an art activity. I’ve always been a fan of the Life is Good company for their efforts to spread optimism. In prior years, I’ve had students design a LIG t-shirt with a positive message on it. This year, I’m going to marry the idea to growth mindset so students can design a “positive growth mindset” message. Looking forward to what they come up with!
Yesterday’s snow day resulted in about 1/3 of the class attending. We spent a good portion of the day learning about and practising allieration. We then put it together in a book. Here is the result. Enjoy!
