Today we were finally able to revisit our initial list of ideas for our own Rm. 202 Pirate Code.
We used a protocol called Walk, Stop, Turn and Talk (which I saw on Twitter this weekend but sadly can’t remember who to credit for the idea) to talk about our thoughts on the first try. Kiddos walked around until I called “stop,” in which case they turned to the closest friend and talked about which options on the list they thought should be kept. They were supposed to give reasons based on how that addition would help us learn like pirates (based on our answers to that question which we had recorded the other day). It looked and sounded like this:
Here’s our revisions, and then a “prettier” copy of the changes:
Pretty good, huh? Oh, and that red part is that we decided that Learn or Walk the Plank! should be our Class Motto. Verdict’s still out on that one. 🙂
I LOVE reading about your class’ journey with “Learn Like a PIRATE!” Please keep sharing the adventure!!! 🙂
Thanks for reading–and thanks for commenting. They are SUPER excited that you are on board with us. We have really gotten into connecting with authors this year and when “famous” adults take the time to respond to them they feel very special and it adds to their empowerment. Appreciate your encouragement!
That video is precious. I especially enjoyed the LARGE step Charlie took toward E. as you called “Stop!”
