Congratulations to everyone on a successful first week! We have set the expectations for the year and are the learning is in full swing! On Friday, the students had a busy day of learning! They continued learning about the 'LEARNING PROCESS' through the lens of the BIG 6 Learning Principles and their name card assignment and their personal collages. Students will learn to take full ownership of their learning by following learning intentions, co-creating success criteria, asking questions, going through the self/peer assessment process, and responding to timely descriptive feedback to push their learning forward. It is looking to be a fun and exciting year with the students of div. 2
1.) Bring a mobile device (tablet or laptop) on a daily basis to use when needed. We want to avoid sharing school technology as much as humanly possible. Keep in mind, you are 100% responsible for your device. If you are unable to bring one, I will provide one to you.
2.) Collect pictures, drawings, 3D objects, etc for your personal collage and bring them with you ON MONDAY so you can work on it at school on Monday.
