End of The Year Reflections

We have reached the single digit countdown over here in room 14! The kids are super excited, to say the least. I have been wanting to do some meaningful activities with my students that allow them to think back throughout the school year and to help them learn the reflection process.
I asked my students to grab a piece of paper and to divide it down the middle. We titled it, "My Second Grade Transformation" and I asked that the students think back to the month of September, to now, the month of June.
This activity allowed the kids to talk about how they grew as learners and as people. Here's an example of a finished piece {check out the book in his hand!}.
This little girl told me she found her smile this year. What a great compliment. I am so proud of this class!! If you are still in school, I hope you will consider trying this activity out with your students. All you need is a piece of paper and crayons!

  1. What a great activity - and really life-skill-activity - to take time to reflect and appreciate! That is so wonderful that you helped that little girl 'find her smile'! Thanks for this wonderful post!
