With three weeks left in the term after this week (for NSW Public Schools, at least), things are beginning to wrap up. With my Stage Three classes, we have been learning the Cornell note-taking strategy and I have one class who have completed and submitted their assessment task (which I plan to mark on Saturday), and the other three classes will be submitting their tasks in next week’s session. Stage Two are in a similar position while Early Stage One and Stage One are still learning some fundamental skills and working on mastering others that we have learned over the course of the year.
When you get to this stage of the year, what do you move onto? Do you have mini-units of learning that you can pull out? Do you do fill-in activities? What are your ‘go-to’ tasks for this end of year time? I will be spending time with Stage Three doing some green screen work and Stage Two will be learning some coding using Logo or Scratch. Let me know what you are using with your students to finish out the year as you wrap up your units of learning.
