You know the saying: "I teach! What’s your superpower?” It always makes me think of the superpowers our students have as well. I love using the “panel of experts” approach during independent work time in my classroom. Students who have skill in a particular area (and who are willing to help and support) are identified by sitting at a special table, or by wearing a hat, badge, or other identifier. I thought it might be fun to print a few “superpower” badges to identify helping hands in our learning community. When kids care about and support each other, everyone wins!
This resource contains badges in two sizes, one perfect for adding to a hat, shirt, or headband, or just taping to the desk. The second size can be used as “brag tags” for kids to collect as they qualify to be a student helper across the different subject areas. Laminate and hole punch the smaller ones and attach to a key ring, notebook ring, ribbon, or ball chain necklace to use as brag tags.
Also included in this resource:
blank grayscale superpower badges in both sizes for you to label with a permanent marker (in case you have some other superpowers in mind)
“Superpower Survey” page for kids to identify their strengths
“Superhero Helpers” page for students to list other students that they might like to seek out when they need a little support.
Master teacher page to keep track of students who have “superpowers” in each area.
