One of my Yr 5 students spent time today out of the class
planting native trees for Arbor Day. He returned around lunch time, but
I didn’t really really get a chance to talk to him about it this
So I saw that he’d just tweeted a “Hey”.
Four little words… “I’ll make a doc”. It’s been a long week and I know I’m tired, but that’s not why I welled up with tears.
Powerful stuff this motivated, independent learning thing.
[update] He shared the doc with me via Twitter DM because he wasn’t sure how to spell someone’s name. I wasn’t sure either so I texted a colleague. He waited… until I forwarded the texted answer. Sorted.
This kid is 9. Tweets and follows me with parental permission. Love it. :-)
