When we have the opportunity to see what happens in other parts of our community, we begin to connect ideas and experiences.
It was Fitness Friday in First Grade. How great is it to combine math and fitness? Don’t you just love that two of our PE team lifted the work and learning of both the student-learners and the teacher-learners in 1st Grade?
If you read #TrinityLearns Community (week 2), you know that we are teaching each other new ways to communicate learning. Last week many of us learned about the app Pic Stitch which quickly combines multiple images into a collage. (I asked Amanda Thomas, and Joe asked Jedd Austin.) Notice how Kathy bright spots Brian’s work with our 2nd Graders.
This week, Melissa Walker embedded her class’s twitter feed on her Haiku page. This seems to be spreading through the 5th and 6th grade Haiku pages so that our families have another view of what happens at school. Amanda bright spots Melissa’s work.
We’ve also seen our young learners making connections between math and science.
Perhaps two of my favorite tweets – because they helped me connect in person – were from our 3s and Pre-K classrooms. I could sit down with these young learners at carpool and ask them good questions. They could describe details about their day, their interests, and their learning. I now know we need a rocket ship to rescue the balloons that got away. I learn more and more each day about the interests of our learners.
What will we learn about, for, and with each other as we continue to learn and share?
There were many more beautiful, rich learning experiences for all learners in our community. A digest of our Tweets from the 3rd week of school is shown below.
