It's another Friday Five at Doodle Bugs Teaching, and here in New Hampshire, we're having another snow day. I love a snow day, especially when extends the weekend, but we won't be getting out for summer vacation until the last week of June. No matter how many days we have, those kids are totally fried long before the end of June. Yet, we still have to test them, teach them, test them some more, and some how keep them from hurting each other, when they simply need to play!
Oh well, it is what it is, and I'm going to enjoy my snow day by blogging!
Here's my Friday Five:
4. My students were having the most amazing conversation the other day at snack time. They were trying to decide if humans were mammals. They were talking about the qualities of mammals (which they seemed to know pretty well), and trying to figure out if humans fit. They were actually using the skill of "backing it up with evidence" that we've practiced! One skeptical girl kept saying "There's still something I have a question about.". Another girl kept saying, "Are you convinced yet?" Have I mentioned how great my class is?
