A doodle note set that works for either the first day of school OR parent night (or both!)
The pages include:
- Meet the Teacher
- Expectations and Procedures
- Supplies and Technology
As you go over your classroom expectations during the back to school season, students and/or parents can complete the pages in a doodle note style for maximum retention of your specific guidelines and procedures in your own room.
This set can be used in any subject area.
When students color or doodle in class, it activates both hemispheres of the brain at the same time. There are proven benefits of this cross-lateral brain activity:
- new learning
- relaxation (less math anxiety)
- visual connections
- better memory & retention of the content!
Students (or parents) fill in the sheets, and color, doodle or embellish. Then, they can use it as a reference later on.
This set also works well as an introduction to visual note taking strategies, if you plan to use the doodle note method this year. Students and/or parents will actually SEE the effects, since they'll remember your introductory material better than the syllabus and info from each other classroom.
A semi-editable version is also included in the form of blank background images. To use these, place your own text boxes on top of the image.
Check out the preview for more detail about this set and how to use both versions.
