Discoveries: Yellow Group

by Mr. Tim Coyne:

Welcome to our first week! Here’s what’s happening:

  • We will be using the three Olympic values to help build classroom and discoveries communities
  • We will think and talk about what each of the values – friendship excellence and respect – look in sound like in the Olympics and in our camp setting
  • We will be using books such as – Have You Filled a Bucket Today: A Guide to Daily Happiness by Carol McCloud and One by Kathryn Otoshi – to facilitate our making sense of the values
  • Camp and the Olympics are also about being outdoors and participating in physical activities, so we will be outside exercising, running, jumping, throwing and so much more.  We will also use the book Leo the Late Bloomer by Robert Kraus to help us learn about and practice sportsmanship and the idea that we all have different talents, but we can all practice to get better and grow.
