Cook Elementary School

CELEBRATING OUR DIVERSITY AS LEARNERS

Staff Observations

Grade 2/3

What we noticed: Activities that increased engagement

  • Outdoor exploration (Garden City Park)
  • Science - Force and Motion exploration stations
  • Loose Parts (storytelling)
  • Math games/manipulatives; reinforce concepts and skills
  • Garden (planting, harvesting, mindful observations)
  • iPads (e-portfolios, personal interest projects)
  • Representing your learning through different ways (e.g. drawing, clay, painting)
  • Role playing; acting

 

Next Steps:

  • Continue to encourage the students to express themselves in different ways
  • Start with Growth Mindset at beginning of year and reinforce throughout the year
