I created this book with my Grade Two students this year as a way of developing my students understanding of 'The Learning Pit' and ways to 'get of of the pit' when they are stuck with their learning. The children illustrated the pages and front cover. Each child has an opportunity to take the book home to read with their family. This provides extra exposure to the language around the concept of the learning pit and the strategies they can use to become independent and visible learner.
My students use coloured cups to show where they are in the pit and how they are going with their learning.
Green cup - confident (could teach others)
Yellow cup - heading down the pit (trying different strategies - can ask a green cup for help)
Red cup - stuck! Tried all of the strategies they know and asked 3 green cup students for help, needs urgent help from the classroom teacher.
I hope this book helps your students learn about 'The Learning Pit' and ways to get out of the pit when they are facing learning challenges.
