Handing over to students as teachers is a powerful classroom experience! Yesterday, one each of our Grade 5 and 6 students taught their peers the problem solving strategy of "Creating a Tree Diagram." Enjoy the reactions of the other students and of our teachers as well!

  1. Amazing blog -the impact you are having on your own and your peers learning is wonderful! Learning together is proving powerful and surprising - it is great to see you stretching your thinking and engaging your peers in the process! I feel like we are just beginning this journey and we will see many more great experiences in the future! Great reflections!

  2. Well done SMY

    The Preps tried expert groups last week where they had to share a talent or skill with the other Preps. You are a great model for them and your reflections were very articulate.

    Love the iMovie Mrs Yawn! Us oldies are learning new things everyday too!

  3. Hi SMY
    I thought that learning from others is a great idea because nice to know that people can teach us aswell as Mrs.Yore

  4. I think that student teaching is a great way to learn because students understand students and so if we don't understand something, it's easy for the student teacher to help us because they get how we learn.

    I also think that student teaching is a great experience and opportunity for the students to put their feet into the teachers shoes.

  5. Hello everyone,

    I think you have discovered what teachers have known for a long time. When we have to teach others, we ourselves learn from the experience. It's very different to simply reading information. Teaching others makes us think harder about the learning we share so we are able to better pass on what we know.

    Many years of teaching left me interested in very many subjects. Teaching others taught me learning doesn't stop when you leave school. For an active mind, learning is a lifelong journey.

    Keep you minds and eyes wide open to the world and take opportunities to share with others. :)

  6. Teaching the class was a good experience for me because I could see that everyone was engaged and learning. It is definitely something I would like to do in the future.
