This blog would be a great place to get inspiration for kids to write their own WYR questions based on the knowledge they acquire throughout the Exhibition process. I knew I wanted to have a space where students could always write down these things, but it started off pretty slow. Our class now has a schedule! The post is well documented and supported by loads of additional resources should you wish to recreate her lessons with your own students. But this year I also decided to share the same information via a YouTube video to hopefully reach those parents who are unable to read English or who prefer millennial forms of communication. Many school keep a constant math period and continue to work through their curriculum while also working on math related to the Exhibition. Then when it was time to label the countries one student thought it might be helpful to use the globe as a reference.
It was interesting to see that every single day students made changes to the organization as they realized that some things placed in the cabinet were needed more often than they thought, and that the more organized the shelves were the easier everything was to find as you needed it. And here is the story of how we got there… The first morning… When the students entered the classroom on the first day of school I knew there would nowhere to sit. With some modifications and improvements to the process of course. She shows that through the simple action of cutting her hair, she is making an impact.

Then he realized it was more efficient to mark of all the measurements first, then to go back and draw the lines.
After a few days the board was overflowing so we got in the routine of taking time each morning as a class to address the questions, problems and ideas from the day before. The cherry on top? What do you need from me to support those hopes? On Doubts and on Fear! The first looks at the relationship between agency and action.
I shared my goals with them and then we jumped right into it!
I saw a post on a blog about being passionateand it really resonated with me. Students sorted through all of our learning resources and consumable learning supplies and decided which we should display on shelves because we will use them frequently and which we should store in the cabinet because we might not use them as much. So we decided to post what we had, paint it when we felt like it and label the countries when they came up in a discussion or inquiry.
I took everything out of drawers, out of boxes, and off shelves. Then donations started to roll in… exercise balls, yoga mats, stuffies, bean bag chairs and even a diwaniya set! What would you like me to know about your child?

Students also realized that the post-its were not staying on the bins, so they decided to place clear ptp over top of them.

Before delving too deep I wanted to tune into what students already thought about homework.
This took 4 hours start to finish. How do you create a classroom in which your students are free to express their silence, to say what has previously be left unsaid? In my dream world, such projects look like this: And some wanted to email the parents to see hmework anyone would donate what we were looking for.
He chose a spot in the room that he thought was best. And equally as important, thinking deeply and purposefully about how I will support students in the task of working together to pjp up our learning space once they arrive.

Some students made themselves choice boards: There is a great opportunity for students to showcase their learning in math through the Exhibition. Today we looked at the central idea for our Exhibition unit: Some students wanted to check the prices of the things on our wish-list so they browsed Amazon.
They instantly loved it and wanted to be risk-takers and try it out! Their words have been masterfully mixed together to create a dynamic video on Climate Change. Finally he covered the erasable marker with green tape. So we took inventory. I believe that we all have in us the passion to live a fulfilling life and I think that starts with 1.
Here is ppyp we ended… Here is where we started…. Like most things homesork you want to see flourish and grow on their own, building empathy can take a little ground work. We played a name game. To write your feelings down about how you did, how you felt when your homeworm was done, what made you successful, how you feel about yourself, and any other messages of congratulations or support to your future self.
