During the first week of school, we talked often about the fact that all of us (including Mrs. Cassidy) are learners. We decided that each of us is also a teacher because we can all learn from each other.
The students each chose a few props and then posed in a way that they thought a teacher looked for the pictures in this video. (And yes, the photo with the glasses perched on the end of the nose does look familiar.)
This year, we hope to all be teachers and learners together.
I absolutely loved this! I think that getting the students involved like this is great and seems to be entertaining for the children as well! I like that you are encouraging your students to be teachers as well as learners. How has this worked out for you in the classroom?
Courtney, in the classroom this means that I encourage the children to ask each other for support before coming to me. I am not the only “expert” in the classroom. They all have skills that they can share with and “teach” to each other.
