Reflection: High Expectations Star Student - Section 2: Lesson


It is so fun to learn about each student.  The student's get so excited when they know the name of a body part, like eyelashes or knees.  The higher students catch on quick and will add details like a scrape on the knee, earrings, hair bows, colored shoestrings.  This is rich conversation being modeled by peers.  I send the books home for the students to keep.  I keep the posters and use them as my decorations for the last day of school.  The pictures cover all wall surface and is so fun to look at.  At the end of our celebration they can take their poster home with them.
