ADDED LATE: The Cybils Awards were announced today. I love being on this committee for Round Two Poetry Judging. Check out the winners and then don't forget the finalists, too!
----------------------------Well, Expo happened, students worked so hard in ways that one can only imagine when not there: they mounted work, finished models, prepared ads for a hallway bulletin board, helped classmates do a few projects, baked and glued, hammered and painted, measured and cut. They moved chairs and tables and sofas. They hung posters and 3-d projects from the ceiling. They sometimes had a few tears thinking they would never be done, and they finally, finally finished. Visitors came and talked and complimented, questioned and thanked. The celebration and reflection - party food and dancing was yesterday. And now a week of vacation is here. I am grateful for my wonderful students, and for the rest I need! Whoosh!
As for the title referring to "lasts", eight of my students have been at our school for a long time, and are continuing on to high school this year. I remember a few who came to visit as toddlers, visiting with older siblings! Each day at least one said something about the final Expo, remembering all the other years and the other displays, from the first one as a primary student to this one.
And now, Ingrid begins her journey of Expos and sharing her own learning. I goofed in taking the picture of her life-sized manatee, but here is 'most' of it, and a picture of her sitting at her own display, talking with visitors, little sister Imi looking on.
Happy Valentine's Day!
