Here are some examples from my classroom...
A sixth grader "reading" during independent reading time. Oh how they love to be silly!
Here's a copy of a status of the class form. Everyday I take status of the class. This is when they report the book they are reading and the page they are on. I often have to prompt them to tell me the page number. On Friday as I prompting a student, "Page?" the boy sitting in front looks around and around and wonders, "Ms. Haseltine, who is Page?!?!"
Block 1/5 celebrated our time with our amazing teacher cadet, Miss Gaetjen! We wrote goodbye stickies to her. We took selfies.
We said thank you.
We gave hugs.
Sixth graders really are the best. I celebrate their love and silliness. I celebrate their enthusiasm and their hard work! This week, I really watched them and reflected on how far these students have come since September. We are approaching a dreaded time in schools... testing. I want to celebrate all of the amazing-ness going on and hold onto every moment of that!
