Using home learning to inform learning

Learning logs continue to be a success in class.

After going through the home learning with the class, I had the kids think about next learning steps.

The children quickly identified that they didn’t really have much experience of being disadvantaged.

I then suggested they might get in touch with a friend of mine working in development. In order to ask effective questions, the children thought needed to do more research about the country where my friend was working. Connections are starting to be made to our central idea and key concepts.

A couple of quick takeaways:

  • When the home learning is used and referred to in class the kids see the purpose to what they are doing in class.
  • Your own network has opportunities for children’s learning.
