The first day of class was focused getting to know each other and learning about the focus of the class by learning about our Community Norms. The Community Norms: Appreciation, Right to Try, Active Participation, Attentive Listening, and Positive Attitude focused on teaching us the importance of becoming a community. These will be the norms we will follow throughout the year.
The second day focused on learning the Habits of Mind. The Habits of Mind will be the skills we use in order to be successful academically. By using Communication, Collaboration, Critical-Thinking, Creativity and Innovation, and Global Citizenship will assist us in mastering our learning.
Throughout the week we had Community Building activities that helped us to become a community. As a class, we participated in Silent Birthday, Follow the Leader, Mar y Tierra, Would you Rather, Deadly Wink, and Animals Impersonation.
We were introduced to Secret Buddy, Community Circle, and Mr. Tree! We also completed a Research Project learning about the Salinas Valley.
We have much to look forward to! Welcome to Room 19!
