Seventh Grade science teacher from Orinda, California

Ending the year with choice and a trip down memory lane...

After STAR testing, it's Kids Choice week - any science topic you like, and you can change your mind. Then a 'job interview' question each to wrap it up. It was amazing, pin-drop quiet as my 8th graders read articles, surfed the net and turned pages of library books. They loved the inteview too, listening to each other answer 'What was the most fascinating thing you learned about science?'.

Having fun making multi medias from all the pics I took over the year, and they like to see themselves of course. But the real value for me (and perhaps them) is to see how much we've done together, how sweet and engaged and full of life they look. How we've taken a journey together at the threshold of their adult lives unfurling.

I loved your ideas for ending the year on a positive note. I have done some thinking about this as well, and write my own list of ways to end the year on a positive note. Here are my thoughts: http://luria-learning.blogspot.com/2011/05/strong-finish.html

Thank you for all of your suggestions!

MB! Really liked your post. I especially liked your Tech Count Down...what a great idea! I'm going to do that for myself actually! I'm so much farther along with my tech app knowledge than ever before. This is thanks to you and so many other wonderful members of my PLN. Let's all finish strong!!
