4 C's Challenge
Throughout the process, students bonded with their new classmates and enjoyed friendly competition and some heart felt moments. We had a blast and learned a lot of key language we'll be building on throughout the school year. One of the best parts of the challenges was a Mystery Skype with a class in California (see video). This allowed our students to practice our 4 C's skills along the way. Read this blog on the Mystery Skype concept.
We also took some time to build our class 4 C's Anchor charts. Click here to see the anchor charts. See some example pictures below and a video of the 20 paper engineering challenge and Mystery Skype in action.
Growth Mindset Lessons
We want our students to believe they can learn anything, because they were born to learn! Over the course of the first 2 months of school, we have a series of 10 amazing interactive growth mindset lessons that will teach students the value of working hard, having a positive attitude, accepting mistakes happen, and overcoming obstacles. These activities intertwine many of our 4 C's work to kick the year off. Check the video out we'll be watching during our first lesson, "I was born to learn," below. You can take a sneak peak at our growth mindset interactive journals by clicking here.
Digital Citizenship Lessons
Digital Citizenship is explicitly taught on a weekly basis throughout the year. Teaching digital citizenship (#digcit) is vital to ensure our kiddos become safe & responsible online citizens. We can break down #digcit into 9 categories: Internet Safety, Privacy & Security, Relationships & Communication, Cyberbullying, Digital Footprint & Reputation, Self-Image & Identity, Information Literacy, and Creative Credit & Copyright.
