BTL blogging challenge: Favorite Student Memory 15-16

Big Time Literacy blogging challenge's writing prompt today is: favorite student memory from this last school year. I am overwhelmed by the amazing group of kids that I had last year. I am not sure I can write about it.
Here are a few favorites!

Kansas Day presentations! My amazing teaching friend taught me about fun foldables. So we had to try it! We made foldables for our Kansas Day presentations and wrote facts in the flaps.
Here are their foldables and sentences on the Bulletin Board.
I helped this little friend read his foldable.

 Watching students master their writing and phonics skills in Fundations. I was so proud of all of them, but this little guy really struggled with fine motor skills at the beginning of the year and watching him struggle and succeed was extremely rewarding.
 One of my very favorite memories this year was on Star Wars Day!
Most of my favorite memories are not academic. These kids have big hearts and my life is better because they are in it. I have built some relationships that I anticipate keeping for a very long time. I had the privilege of watching one of my little friends play T-ball this summer. It was amazing to see her confidence soar!

  1. I think the best memories are always bigger than academics. Leah (blogger at Responsive Literacy) just posted a good quote she said and word swagged on Twitter: "Covering standards isn't our most important job as educators. It is teaching kids how to be better citizens of our world." so true!
