|Every teammate was fully engaged with this little guy. |
He spoke loudly with expression as he shared his items.
My little partners LOVED 'Me in a Bag.' It was their first official homework assignment, which was taken home within the first few days of school. Each child was instructed to bring a few items from home that would tell their team a little bit about themselves. The only rule...it had to fit in the brown paper bag.
This activity also provided a fabulous opportunity to teach taking turns, listening, sharing, being polite, and when its appropriate to ask questions.
|Notice the Kagan Mat in the center...each student had a number and would|
keep track of taking turns with this simple resource.
|We discussed always making eye contact with someone when|
they are speaking to you.
|This young man was asking a question pertaining to his partner's|
item (practicing active listening!).
