Today is a special day! It is December 12, 2012, or 12-12-12! Classes all over the world are marking this day by participating in a special day of blogging and writing about their 12 favorites: books, songs, foods, or whatever they choose. Our class decided to write about our Top 12 Things We’ve Done in School This Year. We brainstormed a list of things we have done this year and we each chose our three favorites. We tallied the choices on our individual lists, then put the lists together to create our list of top 12 favorites. We reviewed some of our old blog posts as we were brainstorming, and we realized how many things we’ve learned about so far this year!



(with a link to a blog post if we have one)

1. Mad Science Day

2. Skype calls (our goal is to do 40 Skype calls this year and to talk to at least three continents; so far we’ve done 17, and two continents!)

3. Morning meetings (we don’t have a blog post about this, but we will write one soon!)

4. Dinosaur Stomp flash mob

5. Making green screen videos

6. Using iPads and iPods

7. Making 3-D snowflakes (pictured below)

8. Blogging

9. Nature walk in the desert

10. Oreo project

11. Making a cardboard arcade

12. Snowglobe project/holiday card exchange (we just completed this project and haven’t written a blog post about it yet)


Making this list has made us excited to see what we’ll learn in 2013!

We look forward to reading other classes’ posts about #Blog121212. What are your Top 12 Favorites?

  12. Hi Caleb!
    This is how we make a 3d snow flake. We took 6 pieces of paper and started folding them back and forth. Then when we were done folding all 6 papers, we stapled them together. That is how you make a 3d snow flake! Thank you for this comment.
