Get to know you.. roll the yarn

As we began a  year of 4th grade CSI, we enjoyed a "get to know you" activity where we took turns rolling a ball of yarn across the floor to each other. As the ball of yarn came to each student, they shared something about themselves.

We made an analogy to how our class-
room functions as a team. We depend on
each other for ideas, support, encouragement and friendship. When we lose one person in our web, our web is weakened. 

We actually ran out of yarn when we were making our web and tied on another roll. We symbolized that as a new student coming on board. We would immediately welcome them to our class.

Great way to start the year!

All About Me:

Each Tuesday, the students may bring something to share about themselves. Since our program involves students from three campuses coming together, it is a nice way to get to know each other.

Cole always asks great questions and is a great speaker.
Cole shared his Lego projects.
Cole takes Legos to a new dimension! He shared his love of building Lego projects. He brought some of his favorites to share. Cole says, "I can't let a day go by without touching Legos!" He has built some large vehicles using only Legos.
Thanks, Cole!

Moriah has many talents and strengths. She shared her love of reading!
Moriah brought her reading medals to show her love of reading. She had many talents to share with us and told us about her travels to interesting places. She once snorkled with a pufferfish! She also was a finalist in the Washington County Spelling Bee. Her love for ocean animals brought her to rescue sea turtles and swim with dolphins! Great news Moriah!

We are off to a great start for 2012!
