The school year is over and the warm weather has finally arrived. My sister Christine is here visiting and traveling around Europe. We just got back from a quick visit to Paris. What fun we had.

I promised that I would be posting more of my student's Action. I just can't express enough how proud I am of their spirit of inquiry and their enthusiasm for learning.
When we started this unit we read Galileo's Journal by Jeanee K. Pettanti.
After reading we made a list together of characteristics that we thought described Galileo. Many of the Learner Profile Attitudes and Attributes of the PYP came up. At the end of the discussion I shared my thoughts with them and asked them if they thought that Galileo was Curious. I challenged my students to be more curious, to find more enthusiasm and to make discoveries. Now wonder I am so proud of them!

As we are coming to the end of our Solar System unit my students are busy completing projects and preparing for our exhibition.
Many of them have also been working hard at home taking action and continuing their learning independently.
I want to share some of this action over the next couple of days.
This morning I arived in my classroom and was surprised to see an incredible Sun, Earth and Moon model.
Here are some pictures of Kyle's model.
In an impromptu lesson he used the model to demonstrate the phases of the moon as well as the movement of the Earth around the Sun.
Well done Kyle!
