The last day for my seniors is tomorrow. Luckily for me this year they’re all concentrated in one class–my German III/IV class–so I can send them all off at the same time. You’d think this would get easier over the years, but it doesn’t. Because this is the end of my fourth year teaching, I’m seeing a bunch off that I’ve known all the way from when they were Freshman.
So tomorrow we’re going to have Spaghettieis (whipped cream, covered by vanilla ice cream that is fed through a ricer to make it look like spaghetti, and covered mashed up strawberries to make the “sauce.” Did a quick sign up to take care of most of the items, and off we go.
And for the finishing touch, I just finished editing a quick video recapping a lot of stuff we did. I have a bunch of photos that have been turned into me over the course of the year(s) from taking our class Mascot Knut home, screen shots of YouTube videos class members have made, and the various shots from our recent Choose Your Own Adventure stories. I plugged them into Windows Movie Maker, laid down a music track of Tom Petty’s Learning to Fly and I’ve got a killer video. My problem is that I can’t stop watching it; I miss them already.
