This is a time to say thank you and express appreciation for all they do. Some teacher bloggers have gotten together to do just this. They are donating some of their best selling products to be part of a giveaway. I am proud to be able to participate in this as I know that the teachers I work with and the teachers I have met through my blogging journey have given so much of themselves and I want to shout out to all of them ....
THANK YOU! WE APPRECIATE YOU!
The product I have chosen to donate is Our Solar System. If you read some of my guest posts or previous posts about using projects for learning, you will understand why this is one of my favorite projects. It also happens to be one of my best selling ones.
After studying the solar system and doing their projects, I give them another large piece of paper and have them share what they know about the solar system. Many children need to use both sides of the paper to share their knowledge.
I believe that engaging them in their learning with hands on activities and with projects that they choose makes a difference. I also feel that the home/school link is so important. With this project, the family has the opportunity to work together and share the learning. Below is a copy of the letter I send home to the parents.
