School is in full swing now, and I am enjoying my time with the students. Still it is time for another Book Talk Thursday!
Yesterday was Zack's first day of school, and he was ready to go! He has his first grade teacher again, who he loves! AND, both of our neighbors are in his class! I feel sorry for his teacher!
Now that he is at school, it reminded me of a book I used to always read during the first week of school with my third graders. A Fine, Fine School is a great book to introduce the importance of learning and play to students.
I always talk to my students about how learning in school is important, but learning at home is important too. So much of life are the little things that we need to know how to do. We always discuss the things that they learn at home and how those things actually help us to learn in school. The students wrote about what they wanted to learn at home that would help them to learn at school.
This is a simple activity that helps students understand that learning happens everywhere, and we always have so much to learn.
So, what are some life lessons that help you and your students as you learn?
