We began the year with a community building activity. Students were given Play-Doh and pipe cleaners and asked to create an object that represented themselves. Once it was constructed, they had to share it with the class and explain its significance. I admired their creativity and thoughtfulness. Finally, students completed a written reflection regarding today's activity. Reflective writing is arguably the most important process due to its metacognitive nature. Students had to think about their thinking! It was a great day, albeit an exhausting one, and I cannot wait until tomorrow!
