Friday's Five Fabulous Finds

I find it hard to keep up with all the media...blogs, Facebook, Instagram, emails, etc.  I don't check Pinterest like I used to but when I do, I always find something.

I started out my summer vacation on a Caribbean Cruise with my husband.  We celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary.  

I have been teaching summer school and still have two weeks left!  I am also taking a week long science course on using assessments with middle schoolers.

Student Showcase Night

At the end of the school year we had a Student Showcase.  It was my first one and I didn't start saving their science and math projects until mid-year.  To my surprise,  when I passed out their work to hang up, there was a lot!!!  I had each student(2 classes) choose their three favorite projects.  I hung them up in clusters and my walls were covered.  Next year, I will type up and post the standards with the projects.  There was a good representation of the topics we covered.  Some of the projects were done at home and some at school.
