It was wonderful to see so many students eager to share their work today. It was particularly interesting for me to listen to First Grade student’s recollection of a unit which they finished nearly three weeks ago. With some prompting, some were able to pinpoint different parts of the process, and it was great to see them beginning to make the connection between their investigation, plan and final product. For some parents, it’s possible, with out prior knowledge of the content of the unit, that the discussion may have seemed quite abstract! However, I’m sure parents would agree that the most valuable aspect of three way conferences, is to see students actively, and enthusiastically, engaging in discussion about their learning experiences. To assist you with greater understanding of learning experiences during the ‘Who We Are’ unit, I have created a slideshow via You Tube for you (below). Enjoy!
