The end of the school year gives us an opportunity to reflect on what we have learned as a class and to show how much we have grown over the year. Each activity below utilizes a different Google application and is intended to be collaborative, so please make sure you don’t delete someone else’s work.
I don't know about your students, but so many of mine, coupled with Senioritis, were done after state testing. (The well had run dry, no blood from a turnip -- all those sayings applied!) With just a few precious weeks left in the school year, what do you do to keep the kids energized and on board with learning?
You know how it goes. Grades are turned in. Textbooks have been collected. The computer lab is shut down. But the activity level of our students has gone up. What's a teacher supposed to do? As I mentioned in yesterday's post, I've been trying to get my students to reflect on the year.
As another school year comes to a close it’s time for students and teachers to celebrate and reflect on all the wonderful experiences from the school year. ThingLink is the perfect tool for creating multimedia memory books to help students capture memories, preserve them, and share them with friends and family across the globe.

The end of the school year will soon be upon us. This is the time of year that we think about activities that we can do to help students review the school year. At this time of the year I start to get a lot of requests for suggestions for tools to create review activities.
I think we've already established that I have very little imagination. I admire creativity, but I am much better at borrowing other people's ideas than I am at generating my own.

I can hardly believe this year is almost over! I am so incredibly proud of my hard working students, and will miss this little group so much! They have grown so much as leaners this year, and I have so enjoyed sharing that learning with them.
