The first graders are just loving this one. They were each given a paper plate, and as we explored the Vancouver Web-Site, they chose a symbol that depicted the event they liked the best. I pointed out the symbols along the tab line at the top, and we discussed why symbols are important. Then, we looked at a variety of mosaics, and discussed the idea of sorting colors, and concentrating more on the color than the objects. I gave each table a tray with beads, noodles, sequins, fun foam, etc, and they began to fill in their symbols. As you can see... we are about 1/2 way through. Some get it, and some... well, they are enjoying gluing their objects. Some re-teaching may be in order, but, I think the majority is a success.
