This resource has been updated to include DIGITAL version of the activities. You'll find a Google Slides version as well as a Powerpoint version you can upload to other platforms.
I believe our students need to know exactly what we expect of them and also how we feel about them! These posters are perfect to introduce in classroom meetings and discuss. Once you have discussed them, they make adorable decor that will always remind your students about the culture of your classroom! They are perfect for promoting a growth mindset, accountable talk, and relationships in the classroom.
You'll find each poster in colored clipart, black and white clipart, and stock photos. I've also included half-page versions. You'll also find a reflection journal for students to use to write about each one.
Each "motto," "value" or "norm" also has it's own read-aloud for classroom discussion. Similar to a social story, it allows you the opportunity to talk about each one more in depth and have a powerful classroom discussion.
This download includes printable and digital versions of the posters and reflection journal. I have added several "mottos" that pertain to virtual/distance learning and staying safe and healthy.
The following classroom values are included.
