Problem Solving with Legos!
All I can say is WOW! The Lego Wall is problem solving on a level that I didn't even know would be occurring to the students at Acworth! Just in the 3 days that the wall has been open to students, we have heard some amazing things such as:
- how do I build a K?
- how do you get the flat pieces off the wall?
- what are creative ways to use the "fun" pieces?
- how do I make an S?
- the curved letters are hard!
The kids are having a great time and, honestly, we are, too!
Lego Wall is REWARD!
These girls got to come for helping a new student and for showing integrity!
One of the questions was, "How do I make a letter K?" She did figure out a way to do it!
Reward + Problem Solving + Legos = FUN!
Book Talk Excitement: Origami Yoda Series
I asked Christian to share with me about the books and his origami. I will definitely be sharing this with our students because it is a GREAT book talk.

Schedule for Next Week
Conference Week is next week and we will have shorter days. Most classes will be coming to check out books.
The projects for ABL in grade four will be presented Thursday and Friday and I can't wait to see how they turn out. The kids did a great job of planning their scripts and recording their information for the Power Points. It should be a wonderful and interactive learning experience to see all of the hand-made artifacts in the fourth grade classrooms!
