Day 1

August 19, 2015

Today was the beginning of a journey that has been over a year in the making.  I work at a school, Agnor Hurt Elementary, in a district, Albemarle County Public School, that values building and developing student-centered learning spaces.  Agnor Hurt opened a new addition to the school this year.  The new learning “classroom” is a multiage space that has over 115 kindergarten to fifth grade students.  I am working directly with @MrCraftMultiAge, @CWoodKids9 and 3 other outstanding educators.  Thanks @MicheleCastner1 for your leadership!

These are a few of the pictures from day 1.

It is a beautiful, open space that allows students to learn in a variety of places and in a variety of ways.

Who doesn’t like a good cave? These students found this within minutes.

There was a lot of teaching today.

One rule in the space: Respect

#BYOD: We have 1:1 in the space but learners know what they need and will bring it when they can.
