Students are starting to nail down their driving questions for their genius hour projects. Students are learning about topics such as Holocaust, the moon, mental illness treatments, creating a buddy bench for our K-5 kids, and so much more! The ideas they have are impressive and exciting!
Please fill out this form for Genene to help her with her Genius Hour project!
To finish the week, we learned that good readers use what they know (what we call schema) and add it to the text to figure things out. So today, we tried to figure out which “inference bag” belonged to which adult in our building! We learned that some of us have more background knowledge than others with certain teachers! Some of the things we think we figured out based on the “inference bags”:
- Mrs. Vierra has cows.
- Mr. Wahl enjoys flying kites.
- Ms. Stephens owns a cat.
- Dr. Barnett is a Notre Dame fan.
- Mr. Brewer is a bike rider.
- Mrs. Asay enjoys yoga.
- Mr. Brogan likes to golf.
- Mr. Ivy likes the Cubs.
