Kick-Off Deck #3
Use this handy card deck to develop a plan for community building in the form of a class motto, set of promises, and affirmations. There are two cards for each part of the plan. The first, Build Awareness provides you with ideas for exploring the motto/promise to build understanding and self-awareness. Each card also includes a “Live it” section to help you make the motto/promises part of your every day. The second card offers More to Explore which are additional activities and read alouds to expand and reinforce the children’s understanding of the guiding motto or promise.
This resource includes 2 cards for each of the following along with posters and printables (see preview):
What is a Promise?
