Real World Relevant

17 Oct

Here is an example of an activity from Mrs. Noboa’s class, that makes the students’ learning real world relevant.  Signs were posted across the building referring to a lost mouse, based on the popular book, If You Give a Mouse a Cookie by Laura Numeroff.  A mouse, fake of course, was hidden in various places in the building, students throughout the school read the posted signs to gather clues about where the mouse could be.  The students were excited, engaged, ready and willing to read the information and spy the mystery mouse!  Thank you Danette and Caitlin.

    This is a meaningful activity, not only to Mrs. Noboa’s students but to others as well. Some children were reading the signs as they walked by and wanting to find the lost mouse!. I am glad Drew clarified the mouse is “fake”…:-)
