My vacation is officially over because Monday begins our teacher work week back at school. We will have workdays, meetings, in-service, open house, etc. It will be a busy and tiring week, but I hope to get a lot accomplished. I am especially looking forward to spending some time with my sweet coworkers.
One thing that I have been working on is a set of posters to match my owl theme. I have several different sayings that I think are meaningful. I often use these saying as a teaching tool to discuss behavior, good attitudes, making right choices, and developing excellent character. I have even used these sayings in the mornings for "Read Around the Room." This is not an original idea. I borrowed it a few years ago, but I don't remember where I saw it or found it, so if it is yours, thank you. Every morning after announcements and a moment of silence, I simply lead the students in reading all of the sayings around the room. It's that simple. I began this when we were being encouraged to incorporate choral reading into our lessons. I also like that it reinforced positive behavior and expectations in my classroom.You can see some of the motivational expressions in this picture.
I have created a set of owl themed posters with motivational expressions. This is my first item being offered for sale on my TPT store. As a bonus, I also included my hallway behavior poster with this set.
To celebrate 35 followers, I am offering one poster, for a limited time, for free.
You can find all of this at my teachers pay teachers store. Just click the appropriate link below. I just ask that if you download my free poster, please follow my blog, comment below, and rate the poster at the Teachers Pay Teachers store. Thanks so much!!
