Coaches Corner by Mr. Hudson

This week teachers challenged students to think about the world differently.  As I went into each room, I saw teachers showing students different ways to solve math problems, summarize questions, and learn something that might stretch their thinking.  Overall, students were engaged in all of the learning going on. 

For starters, Mrs. Digiorgio’s class worked with a story that focused on, “The Life Cycle of a Pumpkin.”  The students were able to see how a small seed can grow into a large pumpkin over time.  The entire class was eager to learn more information as the story went on.  I think when fall comes around, the students will look at pumpkins a little differently.  The major takeaway I saw students have was when they found out that a pumpkin is a fruit.  
Another exciting activity I witnessed was in Mrs. Sinone’s class.  The students completed a study on braille.  The entire class was extremely engaged and were eager to see their names spelled out in braille.  To take it one step further, the class library had several books that were written in braille.  One of my favorites was “Humpty Dumpty.”  The students along with Mrs. Sinone created a secret message for me to decipher which I am still working on.  I shouldn’t have told them that I was fluent in braille!!!
