Our Roles Teacher My role as a teacher is to guide your students through the learning process. This week I will be observing the students through the lessons and pushing their thinking skills. Students As a student your child is responsible for doing the actual learning. They will need to be open to new ideas and will be asked to perform small projects and complete some assessments over the week. Parents As at parent is your job to encourage learning outside of the classroom. Interact with your children and ask them questions. Also please try and make it to our performance I know your students will love to see you here.
Benefits of Project-Based Learning Through project-based learning your students will be able to interact through hands-on activities. I think its very important for the students to be able to do projects because they are exciting and they motivate the children to learn. Through the projects this week your students will work together and communicate with their groups to report information they have observed.
