Who Needs Desks?

Photos of kids stretched out all over the classroom, talking with friends, reading and writing…to me, that captures the true learning that goes on in our room.


Here are a few of just such photos.  The students spent one day reading about a plant or animal life cycle, taking notes and drawing diagrams.  The following day they joined others who had researched the same living thing and cooperated to create a life cycle poster.


Those that haven’t finished will complete them today.  Then the class will use the posters that hang around the room to fill in information in our life cycles booklet.


Best part?  Learning and engagement.  Second best part?  My only job was to circulate, taking pictures and enjoying the view.
