|Burr District Elementary School|
As the first month of school is coming to a close, I would like share some of the exciting learning happening in room 17. The students and I are learning about and discussing how our brain can stretch with all new learning, and how it stretches the most when we make mistakes and have to work hard to try new strategies. This will be an ongoing discussion in our classroom this year as I am trying to teach the children about perseverance and how to be ok with making mistakes. We have read some funny books about this. Ask your children to tell about them; My Fantastic Elastic Brain, The Girl Who Never Made Mistakes, and The Most MAGNIFICANT thing. Another exciting piece of our learning is we have begun our math unit of addition and subtraction to 10. As the students about the fun ways we have been practicing adding over the last few days. We read the book All Animals Aboard and have been acting out stories as animals. Today the children got to make their own trains with animals like the story. These will be displayed in our hallway. I look forward to all of the fun learning we will do together this year!
