The last day of the 9 weeks I have "Finish Up Day". The students get all their work back from the 9 weeks and have a chance to continue working on several pieces. I do not get out glue, scissors, paint.....but will give the students markers, crayons, colored pencils. Students are told to start with the picture that need only a little more attention to be complete. Then they move on to the other pieces. While they are working, I bring students up to my table to review their work. We talk about the fav. pieces, hardest pieces, things they could improve...etc. It is more or less a portfolio review. I love having the chance to ask questions, encourage, and challenge my students in their art work. I also love letting them know what I am thinking concerning their work. A grade on a report card is very "detached". This makes it personal.
