Today the first two classes from our Year 3 team visited the Makerspace. Next week they begin their inquiry into 'under the sea' so I chose to use the book Commotion in the Ocean as an igniter, to spark thinking, questions and as a platform to link to personal experiences. Students had 7 stations to choose from.....everything from creating and animating playdough sea creatures to building rafts, boats and submarines. Their egg carton creatures were adorable and they are so excited to write about them back in class tomorrow.
I wonder what the kids will call me, today one said "I'm looking for the Apple Teacher"......and another said "Are you Mrs Maker?" ......funny.
