Has this ever happened to you? As a teacher, there is nothing more frustrating than to hear a student say nothing happened at school that day. All the hours of planning and prepping - for what?
Thus the "Ticket Out of Class" was born.
At the end of each day, I ask the students to reflect for a moment on the day. Together, we review the day's schedule, remembering the new things we learned, the fun we had and the challenges we faced. The Magical Minds then document the most important event(s) from their day at school, ready to share something with their folks at home.
