What educators are saying

I love using this at the beginning of the year to see who can follow directions independently and to establish my expectations of quality work. I get a bulletin board out of it, too!
This was a great beginning of the year activity. It turned out so well, they stayed up until winter break!

This pennant glyph project is a perfect “get-to-know-you”, back-to-school activity…but it’s far more than a back-to-school bulletin board (although it sure can be cute—I even provided you some ready-to-print letters to make a complete display!). So often we miss out on important teaching moments at the beginning of the year, so I have tried to make it so easy for you! How does this project help?

  • It is a great way for students to get to know each other…

  • It is a great way for you to explicitly teach what “quality work” is…

  • It is a great way to start the year by talking about goal setting….

  • It is a great way to celebrate how you are all alike AND different in so many ways—and that’s what makes every class special…

  • It is a great way for you to gently ease back into math, writing, and direction following in a low pressure way!

The template for the pennant is included (can be used as is or blown up to 11 x 17 inch size) as are the glyph directions, ideas for supplemental lessons/discussion, two work samples to help in discussing work quality, and letters to use for a bulletin board or hallway display.
