OMG! Today has been brutal in the land of Patterson! We have many tired, irritable, crabby, sleepy, sensitive, annoyed (I think you get the picture) children in the class! We were originally going to be working on a design challenge today to create our own little dog sleds for the Iditarod, but we all agreed it wasn't going to work today! We got through the morning (thankfully) with some reading and research, then began to look at the process of the design challenge. Once recess began, I knew I had to get out of the room because our little lovely's turned grumpier and started crowding me, becoming very clingy and needy!!! Our afternoon has become more low keyed with the use of computers and our access to all the wonderful programs we have. We even started blogging! Check out our Kids Corner page and have your child show you how to do it!
The object of education is to prepare the young to educate themselves throughout their lives.
Me, Me, Me
I enjoy problem solving, designing, creating, communicating, collaborating, etc.... all of which I expect my students to do. I hope that we have an enjoyable and successful year!
