Picture of the Day: May 11, 2015

We are in the midst of MANY crazy and creative projects right now.  This picture was taken during one of them:

So we’ve begun our first cycle of #geniushour in Rm. 202 and we’ve wrangled in our Learning Buddies to help us!  I’m super impressed with how quickly these kiddos have gotten into these projects and how personal and interesting they are!  We’ve got things from glass and The Leaning Tower of Pisa to ice cream and tornadoes, with loads of other things in between.  SUPER excited to see what these friends come up with and will be sure to share their projects and learning when we’ve finished! #somanysuperthingshappeningrightnow

This picture is from something that happened today as we embarked on (yet another!) inspiring project:

Screen Shot 2015-05-12 at 8.55.51 PMIt’s related to a really cool conversation we had the other day about ways to show that you care for someone, and the idea sparked a HUGE idea for venues outside our classroom that we could spread the love.  We watched a @wonderopolis video about hashtags today, and so as we began to brainstorm, Millie wanted us to create our own brand new hashtag.  Well…I think we did it.  These are the only two tweets that come up when you search the hashtag #nicethingstodoandsay, which tells me that those are the only two tweets that have been written.  And they’re both ours.   (Ok, yeah, and don’t tell us if it’s not true–hee hee). CANNOT wait to show this to Rm. 202 kiddos tomorrow!
