Thanks to my family

Thanks to my family

Sometimes we said that the family it is the most important thing we have, but most of the times we didn't say to them. As a final mission of this project we are going to create a digital poster to show remember the history of our family and also to say thank you to them.

Our final product for this mission will be create the post to include our poster. The 'Rubric to asses the project: The History of my family' will guide us know how to do a great job.

Resources and guides

Contents of our poster

The digital poster should include:

  • Photos of us and our family in different situations.
  • Explanation of these situations in a short text.
    • Date of them.
    • What happened on them.
    • Why they situation was special for us.
  • And something to say thank you to them for all the things they did it for us.
    • We can create a text for them to read.
    • We can record a video to say thank you to them.
Ideas and tools

Some points we should consider to create a good poster are:

  • Clear and short message.
  • Good pictures.
  • Attractive design.
  • Important to say what to do to eat healthy and why it is important.

We can use different free websites to create our poster:

But just in case ICT access won't be able for you, let's make a big poster in a piece of cartuline with drawings and big titles.

The final post with our digital poster

Our final product for this mission will be create the post to include our poster. These points can help us to remember all the information we should include into our post.

  • An explanation about the task.
  • Embed the digital poster
  • The link to our Learning Diary.
  • A short reflection about what we have learnt and how we have learnt that.

Don't forget to identify your post with the tag "Project The history of my family".

If we want, our teacher can spread our post using the Twitter account of the classroom. For that we have to write down the tweet for the teacher. Remember:

  • We can use 140 characters.
  • Include the link to our post.
  • Use the hashtag of the project: #projectmyfamily.

The 'Rubric to assess a tweet' will help us know how to do a great job.

Before posting your text, let's ask our colleagues to check our work and make suggestions, corrections... We must do the same work with some of our mates' outcomes, too. Don't be afraid. Making mistakes is a good way to learn!

Organizing and sharing

Now it's time to share and spread our fantastic work. Along the project we have published different posts in our digital portfolio.

As a summary we will create a complete post (digital portfolio) in our blog with a reflection about what we have learned along this project. As in ohter missions we must spread this product. We are invited to make a public presentation of our videos and of course, a special work with social networks.

Steps for this mission

Creating the post

The following items will guide us to create thii post (Don't forget to identify our post with the tag "Project sport journalist"):

  • Main vocabulary of the project.
  • Grammar reference.
  • All the activities related with this topic.
  • Final outcome of the project: The cookbok of the class.
  • A good idea would be to include the links to all the posts you have created along the whole project.
  • You can also include the link to your Learning Diary.
Public presentation

We are invited to make a public presentation of our posters. Don't we think it could be a great activity to organize an event at our school/classroom? Teachers, students, parents and maybe other people could know what we have done and value all your effort.

Each group must introduce the posters. The resource 'San Gregorio Sección Bilingüe: Useful sentences for your videos and presentations' will help you with general sentences to prepare your speech.

The 'Rubric to assess an oral presentation' will help you know how to do a great job.

Spread

Now it is time to spread our final post through the social networks. Remember we have a Twitter account for the class, it is run by the teacher. So it is time for us to create a tweet to spread our post. It will be published through the class account. Remember:

  • We can use 140 characters.
  • Include the link to your post.
  • Let's Use the hashtag of the project: #projectmyfamily.

The 'Rubric to assess a tweet' will help us know how to do a great job.

Learning Diary: final evaluation

We have finished the project, but there is a very important aspect to focus on now: we will assess all we have done. It is very easy; you are going to think on everything you have learned and how you have learned it. So we should think on all the missions we have crafted.

Below your previous writing we will create a new section entitled: "Thanks to my family"

Assessment is very important because it will help us and the teacher solve and change all the aspects that might not work properly and continue using all the ones which have helped us learn more and better. But it is especially meaningful for us to identify how we learn better.

To carry out this assessment, we will complete the following documents:

We can work on this individually and then share it with your mate (the one you have been working with). Finally you will share with the whole group.

We are invited to talk with your parents about all this. You can publish a summary of your learning process in the final post with all your outcomes.
