Day Before the Holiday Break: Teach Well

Students are clearly excited about the holiday break, and the key is to work with that energy rather than against it.

Today we'll spend some time at a class meeting, reading aloud, playing with teaching/learning materials such as K'nex, craft materials, technology, and more, and watching the movie, "Little Princess," which is beautifully done and sends a wonderful message about compassion, anti-bullying, and teamwork as well as providing a historical and world lens for children.

It's a good way to start the holidays.
