Working on a parts of a polygon follow up work.  These two asked me how many sides does a circle have?  Which lead on to some exploration, chatting and thinking about the question.

Older students helping younger ones to make their own work journal. 
Children of this age love exploring the Animal Kingdom. An older student working with these two made an interesting comment when discussing classification of mammals. "A man can't be a mammal because they don't give birth."

Older students supporting younger ones to make their own work journals.

This student is focused on checking over a younger student's spelling work to make sure it is correct. What a great way to reinforce her own spelling skills while supporting others.

  2. Really great to see inside the classroom like this.

  3. I LOVE seeing this collaborative work, thank you. My little one is feeling very included and has already made 'big kid' friends ;)
