From Mrs. Woods:
As I pause to reflect on our first full week in fifth grade, I feel grateful to be spending this school year with such inquisitive and passionate children. We began our week framing our hopes and dreams. The language of hopes and dreams (as opposed to “goals”) is powerful and intentional, for focusing on what we hope and what we dream opens ourselves up to many possibilities.
I believe a child’s innate curiosity is essential for learning. Watching fifth graders think and wonder and write as many questions as they could, while sitting in the garden, was one of my favorite moments of the week. I anticipate their wonderings will catapult our studies into exciting and meaningful directions.
