In Community Building Through a Year of Glyphs, by the2teachers, you will receive 91 pages of get to know you activities!
WHAT IS INCLUDED?
This product has 20 glyphs that are seasonal - averaging 2 per month for the traditional school year. Each glyph includes one page where students choose an answer based on their own preference, experience or likes. Their choices dictate the way a seasonal picture is colored and what color paper will be used for the background. Each glyph also has a reflection page where students review peers work to find similarities, differences, and reflect on the work. Also, each glyph has a note home to let parents know that a glyph activity was completed in school - helping to build the home and school connection. You will also receive an introduction letter to send home prior to beginning glyphs.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF DOING GLYPHS?
The glyphs contained in this product allow for two activities per month. This equates to two times throughout each month of the school year where a craft activity is completed. Each glyph allows individuals to share information about himself/herself that may not come to light during other activities. Students are given an opportunity through reflections to find peers that they have commonalities with AND peers that have different experiences/interests. This knowledge should be followed up with time for the peers to interact with one another - with the glyph activity as a common talking point. This will assist peers in forming new bonds and relationships. It will ultimately flow into all areas of your classroom community.
WHEN SHOULD I DO GLYPHS?
The glyphs in this activity can be done as morning work, during meeting time, as an end of the day activity, etc.! Start the year off doing a back to school glyph. After the students are done community building and reflecting on their work, display the glyphs on a bulletin board or hang from a clothesline. They make for great displays for back to school night AND they help your students take ownership of the room.
