this teacher memory book from Collaboration Cuties the last few years, and it not only gives me a chance to reflect on the year from a student perspective, but it also helps me realize that even when things are so crazy and I feel a bit out of it and maybe a *little* overwhelmed, the kids still love me. :-P
Anyone else think it's the biggest compliment when they accidentally call you "mama"?
This helps me remember that the little things are what they hold onto... even from the first day of school!
I am so proud of her for knowing what kind of learner she is, and glad I could be THAT teacher!
How sweet is this?? Yep, I love minions.........
This student has made sooooo much progress in reading this year, but sadly, we haven't been able to get him the math support he needs yet. Poor guy... so stressed! :(
Awwww. This is the bad thing I think about bigger class sizes. I try to get as much time in each day with all my kids, but it just doesn't always happen... I wish I could change that!
This guy has really had a rough time this year with 4th grade... he was pulled out for reading support during my reading block, which helped him... but from his point of view, he wishes I would have taught him reading instead. Again... if we had smaller class sizes, maybe it would have worked...
This makes me smile- and several of them said this for Social Studies- because the American Revolution is my FAVORITE thing to teach in Social Studies... it obviously rubs off on my students. :o)
Do you have your students reflect on the year? I think it not only helps them think about all they have learned, but it helps us to realize what we are doing RIGHT, and what we can do BETTER. :o)
