Summer has meant spending a lot of time on Pinterest... Here are my versions of two pins that I thought were worth recreating. :)
|Inspiration for chart from The New Principal Principles|
Quote by William Glasser
My class spends a lot of time those first weeks discussing how we learn and why we do things a certain way (routines and all that). I'm one of those people that need to know the importance behind why we do things, and I like to pass on that information to my students. I really feel it gives the students ownership in their learning. Even if my students won't understand percentages right away, this top chart will show them that it makes a big difference to be active in their learning.
As for grades, this is the first year of letter grades and it's a doozy of a transition - for both students and families, especially if the child is the oldest in their household. A little reminder that grades are more than just what you comprehend, that effort is also required to earn those top percentages.
I wanted to share these, just in case you haven't seen the original pins on Pinterest.
Hope you have had a great day!
