Raise Your Hand, Answer the Question, and Keep Your Voice Down

Reflections from a 5th Grade teacher…

My class is celebrating their informational writing pieces tomorrow, and I think I just realized that is my mistake. They should be celebrating what they have learned about informational writing AND the writing they´ve done. I will have to remember that for  next time. I had originally titled this post Planned Risks, because I was going to talk about how I want my students to be risk takers, and also good planners (I was worried that one ruined the other…). I realize now, that how I presented the celebration to them, I just focused on the product and not the process.

I will address this mistake with my class tomorrow. Hopefully it is not too late.
