I love Class Dojo’s Growth Mindset videos. We’ve watched three now and they are fantastic! If you haven’t seen them, you have to check them out! The first one is about how your brain is constantly growing and learning. The second is all about the importance and that it is ok to make mistakes. The one we watched this week is all about timing. You might not how to do something right away, but it’s not that you won’t ever get it, you just don’t get it “yet.” Great videos that provide great discussion opportunities!
I love number talks! Love, love, love them. I need to give number talks it’s own post to fully declare my love lol. Above is one we did the other day using mental math and solving a 2-digit by 1-digit multiplication problem. Mind you we’ve only been focusing on basic multiplication for about a month. Look at the number of different strategies and the way the kids are using the numbers flexibly to figure out the answer! I was impressed!
We had our second round of conferences on Tuesday. Luckily we had the whole day off school to meet with parents. I always love showing how much progress the kids have made. I have a great group of kids and families this year so the conferences were very productive and helpful!
Here’s a shot or two from Valentine’s Day on Sunday. My husband knows me well – flowers and Fritos lol. The way to my heart! We also had an amazing dinner at Brio! Love the restaurant!
