Learning, Comfort Zones, Engagement

Watch this video!
"Getting stuck is not a problem. Staying stuck
is. Good learners practice getting unstuck, and
here’s how: Turn that around — praise for
progress, don’t praise for perfection.”

 "At times of change, the learners are the ones who
will inherit the world, while the knowers will be beautifully
prepared for a world which no longer exists.”

TOOLBOX: Rhyme-A-Week

ABOUT A-Rhyme-A-Week 
The Rhyme-a-Week phonological
awareness program features 30 different nursery rhymes.

The phonograms or "rimes" emphasized in the program were
first identified by Richard Wylie & Donald Durrell in

Examining a list of 1, 437 words commonly spoken
by children in primary grades
(Murphy, 1957), Wylie & Durrell
identified 37 rimes that accounted for nearly 500 words of Murphy's list.

In determining the order of rhymes and rimes to present weekly, 
they follow Fry's (1998) suggested consideration of frequency.

Happy Saturday!
