Communication is a part of everything we do and sets the stage for all learning. Communication supports connections across our community. According to the IB, “we express ourselves confidently and creatively in more than one language and in many ways. We collaborate effectively; listening carefully to the perspectives of other individuals and groups.”
We started our week communicating with our community at Morning Meeting for Grades 3-5.
Communicating in more than one language.
The inquiry process begins with questions. we communicate using the language of wonder. asking good questions is where we begin.
