Asked everyone concerned and all are happy for me to blog.
Used this at a staff meeting tonight and it made for interesting discussion.
Yes, I could have said 'well what could you use to stick it?' and my lovely TA could have let the little boy find out by trial and error that he had not put 'the sticky side down' but what I always say to staff is to look at the whole picture – if you took EVERY learning opportunity in a session then an activity may well lose momentum.
See what you think.
P.S. Check out my TA's coordinating observation bag and assessment book and pen in hand!! Both of my TA's are really embracing my thinking and working VERY hard to make it work and, I might say, getting some brilliant results!
As for my friend who wasn't bothered yesterday – well today she painted a picture.
'That's lovely' I said….'Tell me about it!'
'Well' she replied…'That's the beach'
'How Fabulous' I said
'There's the people'
'Oh yes, I see them – I think I can see you' I said
Then she said… 'and there's the shark attack… and there's all the blood!'
'Oh' I said, and at that point was lost for words.
I can tell we are going to have a special bond me and her!
