This file contains 14 signs to promote a positive learning environment. These bright signs can be printed in a poster size, 8.5 x 11, or print several to a page for students to add to their notebooks.
If your school is following a PBIS initiative, this packet will work for you as it focuses on effort, respect, responsibility, and being an important part of the classroom.
This packet includes:
Volume Expectations (uses colors, description, and similes) - this chart would make a great back to school activity - have students write their ideas of when and where the volume would be used and stick them on the chart - your class could then discuss noise level expectations.
Be Here poster with other active verbs ending with Be You & Be Proud (2 versions - I had an issue printing one of the fonts as a poster, I altered the font slightly and was able to print the poster successfully - not sure if it was the poster printer or the font, so I included both versions.I used the second version for my poster, but the first one printed perfectly with my laserjet printer.)
Did you Know? poster telling students they are cared for and reminding them that if they need help, they can ask.
Effort Meter - students reflect on their work to see if they "hit the target" or can work a little harder to be successful.
Ready to Learn poster with expectations for students working independently, in small groups, with a partner, and as a whole group. The poster refers to the volume expectations.
Goals Today & Today is going to be a great day
Mistake quotes that includes common errors with the correction (focus is on spelling, homophone, pronoun usage - only 1 error per poster - reminder/inspiration to always double-check our work)
Practice Makes Progress
Ok to Not Know
Bonus: Bathroom pass that can be printed and wrapped around a hand gel bottle to create a pass - on the pass are reminders of being safe, respectful, responsible, and silent
Brighten up your classroom with positive posters!
