Looking back over the school year is a way for students to reflect on and reinforce what they've learned. If you do a highlights sheet every year, you can save all the sheets as keepsakes to remind you of your school years when you get older.
Tomorrow's memories are yesterday's dreams.
Use the Top 10 sheet to make a list of the top 10 moments or memories of the past school year – a test you did really well on, something you enjoyed learning about or thought was interesting, a new friend you made, a class trip, a personal achievement like making the basketball team. These moments twinkle like little stars and are the highlights of your school year.
As a group activity, students can brainstorm things that have happened over the year to spark each other's memories. A teacher can make a running list at the front of the room. Students can then use the list as inspiration to fill in their own Top 10 sheet.
