The last two of the Year 3 classes went through the Makerspace today. It's really interesting reflecting on the dynamics of each class......those that persevere and never give up......those that try the old "I can't do it (with big sad eyes and expect I'm just going to do it for them NOT!). Tomorrow I have the first two of the Year 4 classes, their focus is on rocks, minerals and gems.....then moving onto landforms. I've planned my stations, then thought, rethought and thought again, you know what it's like.....I was just looking for a way to connect all the dots, not only this terms 'theme' but also our school wide goal of writing. Looks like I just may have found it.......watch this space for tomorrows blog post when I reflect on the outcomes.
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.
