I have created a fun an innovative way for you to communicate with your class. Simply print out and laminate Faceboard’s eyes and mouth and let him/her come to life on your white board. I have included 36 helpful (some funny) speech bubbles and several for you to add your own text. This will provide a wonderful opportunity to give reminders to your students, add interest to the instructions on the board, or give much needed encouragement in the form of positive reinforcement.
I came up with the idea after eating at a tiny restaurant down by the Cape Fear River. The owner hung a small chalk board up just for the waiters and waitresses to read. She posted words of encouragement, funny jokes, notes of thankfulness. It touched me how she could have a personal connection with her staff, even when she wasn't speaking directly to them. Thus, Faceboard was born. It's kind of goofy--but the kids love it.
