New Year’s Resolutions

I thought the New Year would be a perfect opportunity for students to start talking about the future and what they ‘will’ do or would like to do; in other words, introducing the future tense in a simple and very authentic way.

Some of you (parents) will have had emails from me this week: I have been using a program called Evernote to record student work – I use the iPad to take a picture of whatever they’ve been working on, and then conference with them for a quick 2-3 minutes so they can tell me about their work. I find it is a great way of record-keeping and documenting student progress. I look forward to being able to look back on student work in a few months’ time so they themselves can see the growth in their learning and identify their goals for future learning.
