As you know, this class has Genius Hour every day. Students complete projects and learn advanced content in a topic of choice. 208 earned another paw party and students chose to be rewarded with a "Genius Day" where they wanted to share their learning with peers. I am proud to have students and a classroom culture where students want to be rewarded with teaching one another and with deeper learning.
SPOKEN WORD read picture books aloud, MUSIC taught the class rhythmic patterns, COMPUTERS shared their 3D printing models through tinkercad, WRITING led a whole class character study, MATH taught the class order of operations and exponents, CONSTRUCTION led a tower-building competition, SCIENCE led the chemical weathering experiment, VISUAL taught the class about shading through an activity, and MOVEMENT showed the class several examples of how movement expresses tone.
I wish I took more pictures, but I was mesmerized by the lessons that students put together. Seeing students taking the lead and teach each other was a beautiful sight. On December 11th, I will start meeting with groups to starting plans for final projects.
