How sweet it is. After two wonderful years in a Kinder-Grade 2 art room, I took a new position in the school next door, which is Grades 3-5. I absolutely love it. Here are some signs and posters I made for my new classroom, mostly "borrowed" and reconfigured from the fabulous ideas on Pinterest.
|Love this idea so the kids can know what it is they're doing in class, why and how they can demonstrate understanding.|
|If you're not going to let them say "I can't" it's only fair to let the kids have other options. I see this as an important life skill.|
|Another gem-- many times a new piece of paper isn't the answer!|
|These are very effective. Stop sign is a non verbal, emotion free warning and a ticket to the Chill Out Zone is to a chair alone where the child needs to write and explain what agreement they broke and how their behavior will change next time.|
|The kids use this as a reference all the time. My motto is: "I want your best work, not your fastest work."|
