Cursive Ashley Keesis-Wood 3rd GradeI teach cursive writing on Fridays, and today, we were learning the letters "v" and "y". One of my children informed me that the lowercase "y" looks like a bad dab. He also told me he was excited because now he can write "yeet" in cursive.
Volcanoes Laurie Smith 2nd GradeAs we read about volcanoes in Wonders, one of my students lit up and began to tell the class all sorts of things about a group of volcanoes. He was going too fast and we had to keep to the lesson, but I spoke to him about it in his 1:1 mentoring time...he was still lit up. So I challenged him to prepare something to share during science class. He was so happy, got the website up that he subscribes to for up-to-date info on Kilauea, and happily screen shared and presented about the volcano and how to follow it on the net, and the class really liked it, so he shared in both science groups. His mom said he was so happy afterwards, smiling ear-to-ear. He is being tested for G/T and really needs these kinds of outlets.
