We have been hard at work learning how to be independent workers. We are learning to appreciate differences and our similarities. We are respectful of each others learning styles and supportive of each others learning. It is a beautiful thing. Recently a blog reader sent me this article called 20 Things Educators Need to Know about Learning Spaces. I enjoyed reading the article and thought “wow, maybe everyone isn’t doing things just like us”. So I decided to ask the kids what they thought about the things we were doing daily and about being able to choose where they prefer to work. That quickly led to putting together a digital story about our day and how we work. We use a Daily 5 structure by The Two Sisters. When the kids are working independently, it allows me to confer and support each child individually. I love that I feel like I really know each child, their learning strengths and areas that need my support. Enjoy…

We have had a great day celebrating the 100th day of school. We each read 5 books, 19 kids and 1 teacher =20 X 5=100 books that our class read today! We made a list and it was very long.
We counted to 100 by 1s, 5s, 10s, and even 25.
We also illustrated and practiced reading a 100 day poem. AND we tried to write 100 words that we can read in a little book, but we ran out of time. Wow! This day went by fast.

The Elf on the Shelf visited McHarg and came to our room. He explored different things in our room but nothing seemed to work out well for him. Leave us a post to tell us what the elves have been up to in your home.
