Here in Grade 5B, we are always willing to give different approaches to learning a go. So when Ms. Cassandra discovered Body Spell on GoNoodle, she scrapped the written spelling assessment and gave us a chance to spell with our bodies instead. This was an amazing experience that made our brains view spellings in a new and unique way. We loved it. Check out our photos below. We also took some time for mindfulness this morning and practiced some breathing and reflection activities to focus our minds and set us up for the day ahead.

Today’s learning emphasized taking thoughtful new action as part of the inquiry cycle. Being an IB learner means using our initiative and developing our skills and attitudes to allow for meaningful student action. This action takes place as a result of learning and we had so many wonderful and shining examples in class today of various students taking action as a result of their learning in school. Having a growth mindset means that we try to take inspiration from other people’s success. Seeing other student role models who are achieving learning success only encourages us to strive for similar successes with our own learning. Ms. Cassandra can’t wait for more examples of student action to emerge over the coming weeks.
