32. I tend to do a lot of hands on projects for end of unit wrap ups

over the course of the year I buy a LOT Of paper, card stock, colored pencils, glue, tape, twine, posterboard, ribbon, and a whole host of other things. I do that because I feel that my students will retain the information a LOT more than just unit tests. It also allows the kids to excel in their natural "multiple intelligence" area. Some write, some are artists, some are organizing phenoms and some speak very well. End of unit projects allows each student to shine in their area.


I also provide pencils, pens and notebook paper just because. I would rather a student have what they need than to fight a pencil battle in class.
