Grade 1 - Sharing Our Learning

Grade 1 students created their own community by choosing 7 public places they felt were most important, and drew a map. We had an opportunity to share this with our Grade 2 friends. Communities can play an active role in promoting student’s sharing their learning, whether it’s by attending exhibition nights, participating in presentations of learning, or even developing in-classroom activities aimed towards getting students to share. When students are provided an opportunity to publicly share their knowledge about something they have learned, they are given more opportunity to take ownership of their work, which demonstrates that it has value, and many also see their self-esteem increase as they take pride in their work and their sharing.
