I know I did a good job!: This week our Team 2 goal is to know that we did a good job. Today I kept asking our class to do different jobs. After they did a job, I would ask: “Do you know if you did a good job?”.
They could all (almost) always say yes, and how they knew it. Except for once or twice when someone was honest and didn’t say yes. And that is okay. It’s important to know when you didn’t do a good job too.
Here’s the awesome thing: Seeing that my class knew they did a good job (or not) was how I knew that I did a good job teaching today!
And it was so much fun. I took pictures, made links, and described, some of the things Team 2 knows they did a good job at today:
Math #1: Morning math was Geometry again.
We did some extra 3-D shape work after morning math, just because Marcus loves it. We learned about nets and made cones!
Math #2 Learning about Estimating Measuring centimetres:

Do the work: First estimate, then measure.
Social studies: We used Pebble Go to compare an American holiday (Veteran’s Day) with a Canadian holiday (Remembrance Day) in Canada. There were lots of similarities!
Music: We are learning a traditional folk song called Lukey’s Boat. Yesterday we listened to how the band Great Big Sea sings Lukey’s Boat as a rock song. Today we listened to two more Great Big Sea songs: When I’m Up (I Can’t Get Down) and Ordinary Day.
Language Jobs: We always do a good job at language jobs. You can see more details about how this works here: Wild Cat Jobs.
Captain Hannah: Hannah didn’t retell a great book. She retold an AWESOME book. Everyone who did the independent reading Wildcat Job got to read Little Critter stories because of it!
