Sorting out, not tuning in 18/365

It’s the start if a new term, a new unit.

Instead spending the week tuning in, the children have been sorting out patterns and non-patterns, lines of symmetry in their natural environment. They’ve been deciding where to go to take pictures to tell the story of life in Singapore.

These ideas might seem disconnected.

But this week I’ve been quietly listening and observing. I’ve discovered misconceptions and opportunities for learning. The focus of the unit is becoming clearer.

Listening to what students say and what they don’t is the most important part of the inquiry cycle.
