Fun first week!

I had such a great time getting to know my students this week. We did a lot of hands-on, creative activities to express our unique interests and passions. We sculpted, collaborated, drew, colored, worked on iPads, and discussed expectations for this year. I believe we made a great start to the best year ever! If you haven’t followed our class Twitter yet, find us at @simscity153. We will post small glimpses of what we are doing in the classroom each week so that I can brag on my geniuses and you can see how hard they are working!

What are you teaching the world?
