Spending an intense five weeks with grade one students was a huge learning experience and made me grow in ways that I might not have imagined otherwise. I will certainly treasure the memory of little people who put it all out there, leaving nothing to the imagination. A slide show, rather than words, seems appropriate. I’m sorry that I missed photographs of their cube-a-link grouping activities. I’m sorry that you can not see them jumping and dancing while counting by 2s and 5s…getting those numbers squeezed into their bodies. I’m sorry that you can’t hear them singing, with all of their hearts, the theme song from Frozen. Their scientific illustrations in their lima bean journals were spectacular as well. I hope that those dang beans, now sprouted and planted beneath soil, will grow to be great bean stalks! They have much invested in their scientific observations!
