Monday was one of those funny days. Team photos had large chunks of my class of the day and the pressing issue of the earthquake in Nepal. Rather than fight against the energy of the day, the kids researched about Nepal and then made a video encourage other children to take action.
Sometimes the best classroom actions are spontaneous ones.
I totally agree. I have been throwing out my timetable a lot lately. And whilst its taking some time for me to adjust, my students are thriving. They know I value them; their needs, interests and passions, more than I value my own schedule. It is easy to get caught up in ticking boxes, it’s so refreshing to soak in the excitment that is student-led-learning.
