I am very excited to be starting a new school year and getting to know all of my students this year. I hope that each parent and student are just as excited for the start of the new school year as I am.
Today at school we watched a YouTube video that is a pep talk for teachers and students. We used it to launch a discussion about the importance each of us has in the classroom, the school, and the larger community and the importance for us to, get your learn on! If you want to view the video at home, feel free to check it out! Let us know what you think of it!
Some of the take away messages from the video were:
* What are you teaching the world?
* Everybody is a teacher and everybody is a student.
* You're hear, you take up space, you matter.
* History is made by ordinary people like you and me.
* No matter who you are, someone is learning from you.
* Teachers also see the person we can all become some day.
Be sure to subscribe to the class website so that you get an alert when new information is added such as regular updates and information. Some items to look at on the website include the class calendar (we are now paperless!), deadlines and due dates for homework and projects, the twitter feed where each student will have a turn to be our "Tweeter of the Day" (see who it is by their initials!), and be sure to check regularly for pictures of all the great learning happening in class.
Thanks for checking our website out! Hope you visit again soon!
