Kansas City | K-2 Journals
We looked at four journal types. 

I invited the class to think about the roles of journals as 'homework' - class started 15 minutes late because the keynote ended late. And it was 4 p.m. and the Teachers have been in sessions since 8 a.m. Greg is a slave-driver so he packs the day for the participants 😂.

After 4 there's still yoga and all sorts of dancing, if you are the dancing type. Me, I went for Chicken Katsu and Sake with a couple of friends.

But here are the highlights of the one-hour elective session.

These are a few examples of journals from schools in Thailand (Anglo Singapore International School) and South Africa (King David School).

There is evidence of counting groups but is it groups of ten?

Source | Anglo Singapore IS - upon completing a practice worksheet students are asked to sort those that they have to do regrouping and those that they do not need to.


Source | King David School - this student was responding to "Draw a Friend who is 7 paper-clips tall". Like all kids his age, he drew a Friend and crossed his fingers.
