         Well, we have just a week left of the school year and I'm filled with mixed emotions. On the one hand, I cannot wait to catch up on my sleep, read books for pleasure (lots and lots of books), go on a vacation with my family, and mentally unwind. On the other hand, I feel such an attachment to my group of fourth graders and will have a hard time saying goodbye. 
          I have been reflecting on my year as their teacher and thinking about what worked, what didn't, and how I will change or tweak certain lessons next year for more impact on student learning. Today I went through pictures and videos that I took of the students throughout the year. This video is of one of my students explaining her thinking about a math problem. It makes me smile!

The photo is of when we were doing our unit on Electricity and using balloons to learn about positive and negative charges in static electricity. :)
