Pursuing our Passions

Learners lead themselves to mastery

Ninjatastic

Learners became interested in performing a song. They wrote the lyrics in rough draft, final draft, and practiced until ready to perform.


Also, another learner observed this 3-day progression and found an app called "Little Story Creator." He used the app to record several auditions of the song and the progression. It was awesome!

What boy doesn't love legos??? These boys have really stretching my thinking as a lead learner. Wanting to follow their interests, I asked myself how do I connect lego building to standards? Well....Here is one way! The group that worked together to build these were also charged with the responsibility to use digital tools to record a story.


The writing standard is as follows...1.28. With guidance and support from adults, use a variety of digital tools to produce and publish writing, including in collaboration with peers. [W.1.6]
