The students in my class understand the importance of daily reflection in order to take a step back and look at the whole picture before continuing on our journey toward the goals we have set for ourselves. They also know that celebrating each milestone and learning from our setbacks creates an attitude of gratitude, a belief in what we can accomplish, and the excitement to take new risks as we adjust our course to take us to the places we imagine in life.
As we near the end of our time together, there are a few activities my students seem to enjoy very much. It gives them the opportunity to look back on their year, reflect, and celebrate both themselves and their journey.
The activities include:
1. Year End Booklet: prompts are used to get students writing and creating art about themselves and their year.
