At one of our staff meeting a while back, Sarah asked us to write on a smooth rock what we thought we represented in our classrooms and then we joined them all together. I wrote BRAVERY. And I guess I was right.
Here’s a post about our posts on another blog. It is about our Spider Inquiry, turned Project, that happened earlier this year.
“And I Thought I Was Brave…
I have never had a qualm about having insects in the classroom. I’ve grown up catching tarantulas in my yard, after all. But I ran into these posts (second post here) about a class learning about spiders, and I realized how much I had limited my class’ learning about the same thing! Wow, I have a lot of respect for this teacher and how she taught her students. Notice how the feeding of their turtle turned into a whole new exciting learning experience! I am so loving this research! There is no limit to where the class will take you and the things that you will learn!”

Pretty cool. We’ll take BRAVE any day!
