This is the video that we watched and discussed today. It might refresh your memory.
On Monday students will be meeting in groups to become experts in the various ways they have explored to tell stories. Students will be gathered into oral storytelling, digital storytelling, drama, music, images and written storytelling groups. Once they have become experts students are encouraged to share their knowledge with their peers.
Here is a wonderful retelling of the Gingerbread Man by the very talented Tony Wilson. A small group will be watching it and identify some of the characteristics of what makes a great teller of stories!
Today students in the 3/4 classes continued to share their expert knowledge on the eight multiple intelligences. Each student was involved actively as they either presented their own understandings of the intelligence they had explored or listened and noted the learning of others. Students completed a giant jigsaw demonstrating their understanding and research.
One of the strengths of the learning was the way in which groups collaborated in order for every student to achieve. Students were heard encouraging each other and organising their sharing so every student participated.
Here's what was heard in the group ...
"Do you need more time to think?"
"What are some other things?"
"This is how you do it ..."
"Are we finished?"
