The Last Leg of the School Year

Spring vacation begins today and then we embark on the final leg of the school year.  We'll spend the first couple of weeks back prepping for the math test, and then we'll embark on our project base learning chapter of the year.

The advantage to the last leg of the year is that you know your students well.  You've accomplished a lot together, and now is the time to solidify the essential skills introduced and synthesize the year's learning in worthy project base endeavor including guided research and question driven research/presentation.

Hence it's time to rest up a bit, enjoy family and friends, and then finalize the year with strength.
