Ready to Hit the Ground Running

This week was all about getting us ready for next week's true Genius Hour kickoff!

The students assembled accountability folders which contain

  • a tracking sheet of each Wednesday from now until the Showcase on 5/9
  • a contract which they will sign with Mrs. Looper and myself stating what each of our roles are in this learning adventure
  • a sheet to track questions they have and answers they find
  • a sheet which will hold their driving question
I'm excited to see how this accountability piece helps the students this year.


Happy learning,

A commitment.....

So.... I've made a commitment to blog weekly!  Here we go..... thanks for going along!

This school year has been one of adjustments.....

  • Teaching writing all day (no more reading)
  • Tweeting every day using the #sharethepositive idea
  • Going back to school pursuing a Master's Degree
  • Taking on new church commitments
While there are bumps with each of these transitions, each one is a learning opportunity!

I appreciate you joining me on the learning & growing adventure!

Happy learning,
M

P.S. Genius Hour starts next week!  I'm sure that will give me PLENTY to write about!
