Looking to start a "house system" in your classroom? Looking to teach your students what it means to have GRIT? Look no further! These class houses were based off the acronym GRIT. Each letter stands for a different "house" and characteristic necessary to have grit: gumption, resilience, integrity, and tenacity.
This product includes:
- GRIT poster with definition of grit, and house names and shields
- House Scoreboard
- PNG images of house shields to use as you wish
- House posters with definitions of each characteristic: gumption, resilience, integrity and tenacity
- Sorting Sheet/Quiz (double-sided): Which GRIT characteristic best describes you? Which GRIT characteristic would you like to work on?
After discussing each house and the characteristics, ask your students which house they best exemplify, and which house/characteristic they think they should work on as a goal. Sort your students into houses accordingly!
