For this Weekly Planner, we're bringing back some of our favorite reflection activities to help you & your students end the school year on a strong note!
“It’s on the strength of observation and reflection that one finds a way. So we must dig and delve unceasingly.” - Claude Monet
Reflection is such a big part of what we do at Kikori. It is an aspect of almost every activity of ours in the form of our “Learn” questions, and we have a whole category dedicated to processing exercises. Wondering why? This is all because reflection is a foundational and crucial component of experiential education! Our activities contain hands-on challenges that build problem-solving skills, communication skills, and trust, and it is necessary that students take some time reflecting on these experiences, oftentimes with the guidance or prompting of a teacher, to develop new understanding from them.
Furthermore, there’s no better time than the end of a school year to incorporate more reflection into your classroom! Taking time for students to look back on all they’ve accomplished over the past year will help them internalize and maintain their growth moving forward.
For five different ways to do this, take a look at the activities below that can all be found on the Kikori App!
