Throwback Thursday: Hopes and Dreams Time Capsule

Here is my blogging TBT.  It is a post from September 18, 2011.  I still do this activity with my students every year…they love opening the can the last week of school.
Second Grade Shenanigans

As part of my Responsive Classroom I always have my students write their Hopes and Dreams/Goals on clouds and hang them up on a wall in the classroom at the beginning of the year.  I wanted to change things up and loved this sheet from Dotsnspots.  Thanks for sharing!!!!

I reduced the size of the Hopes and Dreams sheet so it would fit into can when rolled up.  I had the children share them during morning meeting.  We rolled them up and tied them with a ribbon.  We then closed up the Hopes and Dreams Time Capsule and will share our sheets on the last day!

The paint can was from Home Depot.  I tied lots of ribbons on the handles.  Here is the cover sheet and top of the can.  Click on picture below to print out:

There is an end of the year reflection sheet that I  use before we open the can.  The kids like to compare their favorites and see what has changed and what has stayed the same.

  1. I have used this every year since your original post. I even used your paint can idea. It worked perfect, and my students always love this activity. Thank you!
