The kids loved this book (Beautiful Oops) as much as I did and several classes even clapped when I finished reading! (And they were Year 5's and 6's!) I introduced the concept of 'Miss-Takes' rather than Mistakes and I used the analogy of a film director and the amount of 'takes' they have to get it right......"Right first take....said No Director ever!". I set up 5 challenge stations covering Science, Technology, Art, Maths.....Optical Ilusion Cubes, Construction, I Am (an art and writing station - backgrounds done during this session and writing done next week), Makey Makey and Little Bits. 100 percent engagement and creativity beyond my expectations (love it when that happens). The Little Bits team went the extra mile and designed a 'house' with 3 lights and a fan.....at sharing time I set them the challenge to be real estate agents and 'sell' their house. They did a great job!
We had the Principal and BOT chair drop in for a visit today, the kids just love sharing their learning with others and were delighted to see puzzled faces when they played a piano duet using a banana and a lemon!
