I need to work harder to make sure that I’m making sure my students are thinking and not just copying me. I need to make sure they are processing the information and making it their own. 5th grade and 4th grade projects are on the right track.
I think the third grade project is definitely facilitating learning and problem solving. They are figuring out how to separate the items in the mixture using the properties they discovered. They will be communicating this information via a podcast – once we have dealt with the Successmaker situation.
My 1st grade project needs more work to be facilitating learning. The 2nd grade project, can get there with a little tweaking.
