Not only are my 8th graders leaving this year, but I am also leaving my school to teach in Oakland. This really is bitter sweet, because I have grown to love my kids so much. To end the year, I created heart-shaped word clouds describing each student. I cut them out and framed them to give to them during the last week of school.
Create them at: http://www.tagxedo.com
Purchase frames from: The Dollar Tree
The kids loved it and told me they were planning to hang it on their bedroom wall. I hope that whenever they see it, they remember how much they can offer to the world.
Happy teaching! 🙂
