Hi all and welcome to my blog.

Over the course of my first year as a professional teacher I will endeavour to communicate to you all the innovative and different ways that we will be learning in 3/4P. I am excited to take on new challenges each and every day and help our students achieve great things. One major aspect of our learning in 3/4P will be the use of the Daily 5 as well as Learning for the 21st century.

At the present time we are working extremely well with our Daily 5 learning and encouraging students to enjoy and embrace independence and take ownership of some of their daily learning. Students have been working on “good fit books” and using our iPick strategies. Students have spent time focusing on “Why writers write” and identifying the purpose behind why they are writing each day.

The added inclusion of a Publishers Checklist has aided students to find ways to proofread, edit and revise their writing. The purpose of the writers checklist is to allow students to own their work and not rely so heavily on teachers correcting 100% of the challenges students may encounter.

Please dont forget to visit the page on my blog as well as our classroom Twitter page to keep up with all the exciting learning that our students will tackle in 2014! #mrp
