Yesterday afternoon, we had our end-of-year party. Swimming Pool. Dance Party. Taco Truck. Slushies. It was a great way to end a great, great year.
This morning, I have the pleasure of meeting my incoming class of students. I have been thinking a lot about what I want to say and how I want to kick things off. We only have half an hour. It is the last day of school. But I still want it to be special.
I started off by writing the typical “Meet Your Teacher” letter which was about me and my dog and husband and the countries I have lived in etc. Then I thought about my new role: Technology and Innovation Advisor.
So, I scrapped that letter and wrote some thoughts that I really wanted to share. And then I made this:
I plan on giving the kids a business card with this on it. I don’t know if they all know what the code is or even how to read it, hence the few sentences beside it. We are a close community and I am pretty sure that it will take very little time for the code to be cracked! What I do know, is that it will be different for them. It will make them think. It might even inspire them to create. Or have fun!
The code takes them to a flyer I made on Smore. So easy. So intuitive. Love it.
The letter might just be one of the best I have written and was inspired by a post titled “What’s Good For the Kids”. If you can take the time to click here and read it, I would love your thoughts and feedback.
