Encourage your students to be G.R.E.A.T! Communicating to students the life skills they will need in order to be successful in school is the first step in developing the classroom community that you want. This bulletin board focuses on 5 life skills. They are:
G: Develop a Growth Mindset
R: Perform Random Acts of Kindness
E: Have Empathy & Listen to Understand
A: Have a Positive Attitude
T: Demonstrate Teamwork
Each letter in G.R.E.A.T. stands for a life skill that will help students to be successful in school and in life. After each skill is introduced this bulletin remains as a reminder to students and encourages them to practice these life skills every day.
I have also included T-chart graphic organizers for each life skill. After discussing each life skill, generate some pros and cons for accomplishing each skill. Fill out the T-chart as a class and include them in your bulletin.
