Monthly Reflections in Pictures

April is here and so am I! I love the start of a new month. It is a time I use to reflect upon my previous month and come up with new goals. I also like to share my reflection process with my students. I love how now they are looking forward to it. One of the main tools I use for reflection in the classroom is the use of pictures. It is incredible to look back and see all the things we have accomplished.

As a result, I wanted to share with you my class reflection poster for the last two months that has passed oh so quickly and of course the famous April currently made by Farley over at Oh Boy Fourth Grade 


  1. Oh...end-of-the-year madness. I love it and hate it, all at once. We're at 34 days and counting...not that I'm counting. :)

  2. Energy and discipline went right out the door when the Easter bunny brought Reese's peanut butter eggs to my house! But I am with ya...gotta get to the gym! As soon as those darn eggs are gone! ;)

  3. I'd love to hear more about how you share your reflection with your students!
