Big Life Activity – From Mel

Today’s Video:

Hello grade 3/4s!

Congratulations – you have nearly reached the end of 8 weeks of online learning!

This lesson, Danielle and Mel will introduce you to the ‘GOLDEN Check-in’. This is a reflection tool that helps us think about what we have been doing with our time, what we have enjoyed, what has been difficult and what we might need moving forward. Mel will run you through a quick brain break, and then her and Danielle will both share their GOLDEN check-ins with you. Then we invite you to write your own GOLDEN check in on a piece of paper or on the Seesaw assigned worksheet.

Don’t forget to submit your wonderful work afterwards.

Have a lovely day!
