IDENTITY DAY - Thursday, November 15!
“The one thing that you have that nobody else has is you. Your voice, your mind, your story, your vision. So write and draw and build and play and dance and live as only you can.” —Neil Gaiman
Folwell Elementary School has embarked on an inquiry project called “Identity Day” to discover what each of us is passionate about. This project culminates innovation and imagination through art, design, science, technology, engineering and mathematics while enhancing school culture, community and student engagement. The philosophy behind Identity Day is to share what students are passionate about and create some type of display or presentation to show this interest. Through this learning journey we will discover more about ourselves and about each other, building our relationships and strengthening our community. As staff members, we can use our knowledge of students’ passions to connect to curriculum and learning objectives, too!
Students explore the question, “What is one thing about you that you would really love to share about yourself?” Thank you for supporting your child in discovering his/her passion and creating a display! Displays can include technology, artifacts, images, and written contributions. Your child’s has communicated more with you about the specifics of each class, as well.
This project will culminate in an Identity Day celebration on Thursday afternoon, after student dismissal, on November 15, with students displaying their passion projects. During the day on Thursday, November 15, students will share their projects with one another. They’ll learn about one another as they discuss things like What are your current likes? What do you like to spend time on when you are not at school? What do you wonder about? What is something you’d like to learn more about? What is one thing about you that you really would love to share about yourself?
Families are invited to attend this special day, from 4:00-6:00, on November 15. Please join us! We look forward to a wonderful learning experience together!
