After watching Rachel Boyd's "A peek for a week in a Kiwi junior classroom" i realized this is by far my favorite video we have watched so far. The teacher does a great job exposing her 6 year olds to so many different things. I loved the acronym she uses "WALT" which stands for "We are Learning To." She also does a great job when she looks at a local news website each day and reads an article to the kids and they look for the 'who, what, when, why'? of the article. I loved that her version of show and tell was to let the kids email a picture of something fun they did over the weekend and it is displayed on the large screen in the classroom for the student to talk about.
