Record Learning & Stay Connected with Today's Meet
I absolutely love my Twitter #1stchat PLN friends. They introduced me to Today's Meet a few weeks ago. I have used Padlet and Lino to record their schema and wonders before, and they worked great. The first idea to incorporate Today's Meet to my lesson was to do the same. So I decided to give it a try.
We started an animal unit in science. My students are expected to research and write reports on various animals. This week I modeled how the research process goes. The research subject was camels!
Another exciting thing that I learned this year form #1stchat PLN is an inquiry approach. So I first had my students record their schema and wonders on camels. Since my students are used to recording their thoughts on Padlet, I posted the QR codes for a schema and wonder page on the wall in the morning. The students were asked to record what they know and want to know about camels during the Daily 5 or math free choice time.
