This video shows the students and parents of 6SS working together in their latest PYP Exhibition Checkpoint. The image below shows what the students were using as a guide for the Checkpoint. The parents were asked to focus on the students’ plans, what actions they are working towards and what actions they have already put in place.

Spend some time this evening thinking about what you have achieved so far this week, what you have done today and what you will need to do tomorrow. Then, log on to our Twitter account and write a Tweet to share the three main actions you will take tomorrow. Remember to put the hashtag on it – #nistexhibition

Homework: Gratefulness

April 23, 2012 15 comments

Hi,

I doing my exhibition project on gratefulness. We have so much but we grumble and complain about the little things we don’t have. The goal of my project is to encourage 6SS to be more grateful. I would like you to think about what you are grateful for.

For homework today can you please take one or more photos of things you are grateful for. Then e-mail the photos to me ( Caitie ), put them put on Flickr or print them out. I’m going to make a collage of the photos.

Thanks, Caitie
