Welcome to our room. It is a work in progress and filled with imperfections. We are learning together and building it as we go.
We are working on being kind and brave.
We believe that making mistakes is part of learning. We believe that everyone is good at something and no one is good at everything. We believe that we can all be successful if we work at it together.
We believe in making sense of problems.
We believe that seeing is believing, so we have pictures of people who look like us doing amazing work in STEM. We also believe that experiences change lives so we code all manner of things (video games, apps, robots, 3D printers)
We believe math should be collaborative and fun, so we have a lot of card sorts and games. We also have a poster of Lure of the Labyrinth that was signed by the artists and developers of the game because we love Lure of the Labyrinth.
We believe learning happens over time, so we keep portfolios.
We believe life should have a little silliness. We put elephants on our heads when we take a test and get a shower of wisdom by pouring the elephants on our heads on birthdays.
Our room is a work in progress, just like we are.
