Pay it Forward project

payitforward

   I was watching a movie the other day called “Pay it Forward” about a social studies teacher who gave the class an assignment to devise and put into action a plan that will change the world for the better. Trevor an 11 year old boy’s plan is a charitable program based on the networking of good deeds. He calls his plan “Pay It Forward”, which means the recipient of a favor does a favor for three others rather than paying the favor back. However, it needs to be a major favor that the receiver can’t complete themselves.
Trevor does a favor for three people, asking each of them to “pay the favor forward” by doing favors for three other people, and so on, along a branching tree of good deeds.
I was really inspired by this movie that I decided to have my students think of a plan in changing the world also based on a network. They can put it into action if they wanted to or just show the class their plan. I wanted to do this assignment to have them think better and get creative. They watched a part of the movie and i can feel it in their eyes they are all so excited about sharing their plans. Can’t wait to share with you some of the plans soon :)

Reading Log

Wouldn’t it be amazing if you could look back at a list of books your child (or you) read? Not just over the summer, but for the whole year? How about if you could see the titles of all (or most) the books they read while they were growing up?

Today we watched Crazy Lab with Nancy who has her own show on MTV Lebanon. She came to our school today and all of the students were super excited. They had the best time watching making magic with science that they all want to become scientists when they grow up Smile

Early finishers…

 

    For early finishers: Math “Solve my problem”- i usually have a box in the classroom with Math problems inside when a student is done with a certain activity they know that they have to go to that box choose a problem and grab a recycled paper and answer the questions. Well practice makes perfect right? :)
