Finally an update! A lot has happened these last three weeks, and I wanted to share a little bit of what's been going on.
In the classroom, we're finishing up various projects and tying up loose ends. One project student's have been working on is an IB Learner Profile Book for our families! As you may or may not know, Mitchell Elementary is transitioning to becoming an IB school. An important part of being at an IB school is that every student strives to be an IB Learner. An IB Learner, shows the following traits:
In order to help our Mitchell family adults understand the IB Learner Profile, students have been working on personal narratives that reflect certain attributes. We're finishing up editing our narratives and they will be put together into a book. Be on the lookout for those after break!
Today, I sent home a book with each student. My hope is that every student is able to read over break and have meaningful discussions around their book. Let's continue to partner even during breaks to support the growth of our children!
It's been a great 2015... see you all in 2016!
