It has been a blast getting to know my new GRC students! We are building relationships, learning how to organize and follow expectations of the classroom. We have also had fun attempting to build a chair from just newspaper and tape! Some succeeded and some did not. That is life! Sometimes we get it right and sometimes we fail.
We are currently working on our Advertise Yourself project. Students have chosen a product to represent themselves. They will also design a label complete with a logo and slogan. Then they will write a commercial for their product. It is so much fun watching the students be creative and get to know each other this way.
We have also been learning about the layers of the atmosphere and will begin weather and climate next week. If you have not sent in your donation money and supplies it is not too late! Much of the donation money has already been spent on straws, cotton balls, notebook dividers, coffee filters, cups etc. All of these items are used for our STREAM projects. More about those are coming soon!
