|Day 4/365: Setting goals with an idiom. Appreciating the goodness|
when students "get" new concepts and can apply them. :)
Today they learned the actual meaning of the idiom, we decided upon a kid-friendly definition (hers is on another page) and then they completed sentence frames about how they will knock my socks off this year! Lots of thinking went into this one--reminding me that setting goals needs to become a much more explicit and continual concept for my 3rd graders. We don't just set goals and knock people's socks off at the beginning of a new year!
