This week on the Words Change Worlds blog

This year…

For many of you, the last week of the school year has finally arrived!

Amid the cleanup, chaos, and fun, reflect on the year: one… word… at… a… time.

How? Begin with the words–This year–and let students add one word at a time. For example, “This year was so much fun. Remember when…” To keep a swift pace, it tends to work best when you go around the room in order but you could also try keeping it more spontaneous. Push through the laughter until it comes to a natural end!

Don’t be surprised if students want to do it a second time…
