Hope you all had a pleasant Halloween/Daylight Savings weekend. It was pretty quiet around my house. I definitely enjoyed an extra hour of sleep 🙂
We tried a new seating arrangement today- random! I have everyone’s name on a playing card, I shuffled them up and placed them on the tables at random. I will do the same all week. It was nice to see how students got along with some different people.
Students paid their November rent today!
We started the early phase of the second part of the Early People (Socials) project- Creative writing! I will post the outline sheets and rubric tomorrow. Basically, students are to write EITHER: 4 diary entries or create a newspaper cover or write a script, all from the perspective of a person from a particular prehistoric time. I suggest strongly that students stick with the era they chose for the previous part, as they have already done lots of research and should know a lot about that time. This project allows them to flex their brains in a creative way, doing lots of inferencing and critical thinking about what it would have been like to live in those times. I cannot wait to see what everyone comes up with!
