Chinese New Year is an opportunity for creation. We took advantage of this celebration to write poetry using our senses. It's amazing to think that these tiny English learners have never written a poem in their own language... Little minds are awesome!
Feeling inspired, and hoping to inspire. We kicked off our poetry unit for Writers' Workshop, in Grade 4, with a BANG! I am looking forward to reading all the wonderful stuff that the kids will be creating!
"Understanding is not a type of thinking at all, but an outcome of thinking. After all, one cannot simply tell oneself to understand something versus some other activity." (Ritchhart, Churc&Morrison)
Great revelation, especially as opposed to Bloom's Taxonomy. I thoroughly enjoy exploring Visible Thinking!
