In math, students learned how to give a glow (wrote what they did well, as reflected in the fact that they met their learning target) and grow (wrote about what they need help with to accomplish their learning target) to themselves and their peers. They learned that it is imperative to give detailed feedback because it will assist them in determining what areas they need improvement on so that they eventually become better learners. As they were looking for their work in SeeSaw, they noticed that parents and peers were not giving detailed feedback and/or were not logging in. This is why they decided that it was the problem, which gave rise to PBL (Project-Based Learning). We, the teachers, are very excited to be part of this exciting adventure that your child is going to take control of for the next couple of weeks. We can’t wait to see the final solution to this problem that they are going to solve.
We also started module 7 this week, so please be on the lookout for the newsletter, which will have great tips on how to help your child at home.
