Technically, it is still Spring... but the sun is blazing, my kids are squirming for Summer, and I am doing everything I can to keep them moving & working!
After days and weeks and months of learning about a topic, I begin to call my students EXPERTS! I explain to them that an expert is someone who not only knows something in and out, but can explain it to others in a way that they understand it.
I can tell you my kids are EXPERTS at explaining their thinking and they make their teacher proud!
To help them feel proud of themselves I made this cute little craft:
^This little guy makes me giggle and I think the kids will get a BIG hit out of it!^
(There is a girl hairstyle as well)
I plan to have my students brainstorm some things they are experts at after their year in first grade and we will display them on our last bulletin board of the year!
^These are only a few examples from the pack.^
