A huge THANK YOU to @michellem8 and her classroom of learners...
Our classroom loved to hear about all of the times that other students felt like a Fish In A Tree. Many students commented on similar experiences or feelings that they have had or could relate to. Our class of students also noticed an underlying theme of perseverance, and a growth mindset in many of the experiences shared by the students in @michellem8's classroom. Discovering that other students, in other countries, feel the same way they do, is a vary valuable lesson, and only one great aspect of the Global Read Aloud.
Feeling like a Fish In A Tree doesn't have to be a bad thing... it may be the start of a wonderful journey.
True learning, that changes who we are or our understanding of an issue in the most essential ways, can only take place outside of our comfort zone...
Have you ever left your comfort zone and felt like a Fish In A Tree? If so, please share with us, we would love to hear your experiences.
