1) I remembered to take pictures while the students were doing the data activity. They went around the room putting stickers on charts. They seemed to enjoy themselves and with one suggestion,"We're going to use this for data analysis, what might make it easier to do that?" they started putting the dots in a more organized fashion. I was impressed.
2) 92% of my students have internet access at home! (Thanks to the data collection, I know that only 5 students don't have internet access at home.)
3) One of the new 6th graders gave me a hand-made Welcome Back card! How did she know she was in my class?
