Today's first session began with the book "The Most Magnificent Thing" by Ashley Spires, learners completed Duplo and Lego challenges where they had the choice to select from a range of predetermined challenges and outcomes (if they were successful) or to make a choice from a range of picture cards.
The second session began with the book "The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes" by Mark Pett and Gary Rubinstein. Learners were able to choose a 'STEAM' box or from K'Nex's, a large Marble Run or Duplo and then were offered challenge picture cards (or they could build and adapt from their imaginations).
We learnt a lot about perseverance today! If we chose to work with a buddy, we also learnt about negotiation.
We are focusing on becoming expert problem solvers!
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.
