Year End Ideas Here are a collection of ideas that came from a network of teachers on Twitter.com Original tweet: How do you wrap up the year with your class/school/ etc.?
Write an appreciation letter to someone that helped them this past school year. Animoto video of photos and events from the year. Create a ‘report card for the teacher’ on Google forms. (And the students fill it out.) What did you learn that helped you the most? What did we do that I shouldn’t do next year? Write a letter to themselves in the future (September). What do you want to remember about this year. Trace a digital portrait of their face on the SMARTBoard to create a digital character. Use a Flip video camera to film scenes from a class trip and then edit it into a digital music video. @benhazzard
