Taking a break from the Elements of Learning posts (if you've read yesterday's post).
I'm exhausted from a hard day in the classroom. This is the most I've moved around in classrooms since spring 2018, so this is going to be a short post.
Today "FILLED MY BUCKET!"
I spent the morning in a 2nd grade classroom teaching them to use Apple Clips app to find 4 sided shapes around their classroom and then demonstrate the attributes of the shapes. Such a good well-behaved class. They all finished! Next, I was in a 4th grade classroom helping them use Keynote to measure and tell what they know about angles and vertices. It went really well! The kids were able to demonstrate their understanding of the concept of acute, obtuse, and right angles. Finally, I was in a 1st grade classroom teaching them to use Clips to create book reviews. A few tech issues but nothing we couldn't handle. There were a lot of questions and a lot of bending over or sitting on the ground to be on their level.
Everyone learned something today, including me! Everyone tried and grew today! Some kids created some really cool projects to support their learning! What more can you ask for?
Time for a good night's sleep.
