What happens when we allow kids to tinker?
Labeling is something I did throughout my classroom. My students moved confidently in the classroom and were able to easily access materials. While it may seem like a lot of work to label your whole room, it isn’t, it’s actually a time saver and remember it helps to create independent learners.
So think about how you can begin labeling your room.
Until next time.
As a learning coach, I asked the girls I work with what they wanted to learn more about. The request paper! They wanted to find out how paper is made. To begin our journey, we watched a youtube video from National Geographic Kids. It was all about how paper is made.
Last Thursday I graduated with my masters and in the weeks leading up to it, I was excited but it was also bittersweet. As I was getting ready for the ceremony that night, I started reflecting more on my journey and who I am as a learner.
When I was in elementary school, I knew I wanted to be a teacher. My fourth grade teacher sparked a light inside me that has never burned out. There is something about the profession that fuels my soul. I love researching new ideas and trying them out…it makes me fall in love with teaching all over again. But most importantly, I love sparking a love for learning in my students.
