This was one of the many inspirational things I got out of David Theriault’s keynote speech at Fall CUE 2015. At one point, he asked why we take pictures during holidays and birthday parties. Simply put, because they are memorable moments (Mr. Theriault describes it in his blog). This gave me the inspiration to have my students become photographers; asking them to photograph the memorable moments in the day. Then allowing them to post their favorite to my Instagram account (@Nowatechie). We’ve created our own hashtag (#msnsclass).
I want my class, and their 5th-grade year, to be memorable. It is my hope that we do 1 thing each day they will want to remember.
