We Are Shining Stars, We Are Invincible, We Are Who We Are

As we approach the end of our first IB unit titled, Who We Are, we reflect on the wonderful experiences that brought us to explore how individuals working through cooperation can effectively achieve goals.

We spent time talking about the importance of feelings and how to express them.  We enjoyed working in teams of scientists as we discovered characteristics and uses of Earth’s materials. We created writing that expressed our understanding of word teams and how parts of a story work together to communicate a clear message.

Our garden, playground, home, and classroom became one connected learning place where we looked for actions we could take to achieve our goals.

Henry Ford once said:

Coming together is a beginning;

Keeping together is progress;

Working together is success.

We are off to a great start and are excited to share our next adventure together: How We Organize Ourselves.
