So...I decided I want to have a "Year-long Theme" of HEROES! I'm not into the whole "SUPER-HERO" thing like some teachers in my school are...
I prefer to look at a "HERO" as a normal, everyday kind of person like I am! I believe
I believe this is accomplished by doing something small which can mean the world to someone in a time of need:
- Say "HI!"
- Help pick up a notebook that's been dropped
- Sit with someone who is alone at the lunch table
- Open a door
- Loan someone a pencil
- Buy someone's lunch
The possibilities are ENDLESS!!!
So...for the introduction to the theme, I created a guide which each student glued onto pages 10 & 11. I created it in a Word document with a table...four columns. Each sheet of paper served two students. They cut out the strips, glued them in, then answered the questions during my instruction. It was COOL!!!
We'll be referring to this throughout the year.
