This product is a quick and fun activity to do at the beginning and end of the year with students. I always copy it double sided and within the first week of school I have the students fill out the predictions and goal setting side. The students turn it in to me and I use this as a way to learn a little more about my students. I then file it away, along with other various items that I keep from my students all year. During the last week of school, I hand it back out to the students to complete the back (Classroom Flashbacks). The students LOVE seeing their answers and looking over what they were nervous about. I enjoy collecting and reading over the memories and flashbacks the students write about. I hand it back to them to take home in their class portfolio.
It is a quick and easy activity to do in the first or last 10 minutes of class. It also allows you to learn a little more about your students. The students truly enjoy comparing themselves at the end of the year and reflecting on how much they learned and how much they have grown.
