Here we “played” with point of view, as we
considered how different characters in the book
would think, act, and respond.

The Ideas I Didn’t Try
Before reorganization, I did prep coverage for JK-
Grade 2. Here’s what I wanted to do with them.
Students loved building with the
Geometro tools I brought in to
use. They had so many creative
ideas to share.
We could have done a radio
broadcast in an “interview
format.” Students could
continue building and sharing,
and I could walk around asking
them to “tell me more” about
what they created.
Tinkering In Grade 1
Students learned about various media texts by
exploring options, “playing” with them, and
recording what they observed.
Why not allow these Grade 1’s
to teach others about media
literacy? They could host a
radio show. Even as they’re
exploring, I could go around
and talk to them about their
learning. These conversations
could become a “Media
Broadcast” for 105 the Hive!
Do “Tinkering” And
“Inquiry” Go Hand In Hand?
Students are inquiring during Science, Social
Studies, Health, and Media Literacy. I think that
inquiring allows for some amazing “cognitive
