Picture-2-150x150Our school Open House and Barbecue is this week. It’s a great opportunity to expand our classroom to the entire family, bringing what we do during the day directly to parents. It’s also a wonderful chance to focus on where we’re going the rest of the year.

We wanted something to share with families that presented student goals. Students each wrote a one line statement that stated a personal desire for school success. We then video recorded (I almost said video “taped” but we haven’t used video tape in the classroom for a couple of years since we first picked up a Flip digital camcorder) the student goals outside the classroom. The high level of ambient playground noise is proof that the school day was still in session!

It’s a simple video, but we hope you enjoy the first DreamExtreme production of the 2009/2010 school year.
