It’s Almost Here …

April 30, 2011

Identity Day is less than a week away. I can’t wait! When I read George Couros’ post about Identity Day back in June, I knew that I wanted to give this a try at our school. Thankfully the amazing staff at the school were just as eager. All week, I have heard students, teachers, administrators, and parents buzzing about the Identity Day Projects. I’m so excited to see all of them on Thursday!

Media literacy is a large part of our current TLCP, so to help build some more excitement about this special day, my Grade 1 and 2 students created advertisements about Identity Day. Below is a glog of their advertisements:

Now it’s just waiting until May 5th to see what the staff and students share about themselves. I can’t wait to see what interesting information we all learn about each other on Identity Day: the day we celebrate what makes each of us special.
For others that have had an Identity Day at their school, how did it go? What was the best part of this day? What did this day teach you about the people in your school community? I would love to hear!

  3. Hey Aviva! I, too, am looking forward to seeing your version of Identity Day! I love the Glog! The best thing for me was seeing the kids beaming with pride about… themselves! I am so excited for your school!


  4. Thanks Chris! I'm really excited too. I love hearing the students discussing their projects already. They love sharing about themselves, and it will be great to see all of them sharing about themselves on Thursday!
