During our unit of inquiry into how we move, Lea started a personal inquiry project on how to improve her cartwheels. Since then, she has been working every day on getting her legs higher in the air and keeping her arms straight. Her hard work has paid off and Lea's cartwheels are now looking like an expert's! Well done Lea! You are very committed.
Lea demonstrated how knowledgeable she is about letter sounds and formations when she collaborated with Zoe to write a letter. She helped Zoe write some of the letters she needed to communicate her message. This example also demonstrates Lea's ability to be cooperative.
During our second unit of inquiry, Lea enjoyed playing with the loose parts that were available in our classroom and explored how they interacted with different sources of light. Ms. Alison thinks this is an example of Lea's best work because she showed a sustained interest in pursuing her curiosities and also demonstrated creativity with the uses she found for the materials.
