For my kids’ baseline writing sample (to see where they were with writing to start the year) we decided to have them write about their best vacation ever. Reading over them this afternoon, I could not believe how many different places they have visited.
Amongst my class of 20, their stories talk about going to:
- Sri Lanka
- Palm Jumeirah (Dubai)
- New Zealand
- Los Angeles
Wow–those are some cool places! At only 9 or 10 years old, some of my students have been to more countries than I ever will. Pretty amazing.
