What educators are saying

I was so pleased how thoughtful my students were with this and I can't wait to share it with my new class this fall.
My students loved the ability to share their advice for my future class. They had a lot of fun and were very creative!

This year's students offer their very best advice to new students coming in next year. Current students each design a pennant and write the most important things they learned this year. Next year's students will get a heads up about their year to come just by glimpsing around the room!

This download now includes a printable version that is in black & white for students to write on and color and 2 digital GOOGLE Slides versions-- 1 color version and 1 black & white version-- where students type their advice in a text box.

There are 8 pennant styles to choose from, each with "Dear Students, my advice is" written on it. You can print (or send) all 8 and have students choose their favorite, or you can choose which ones you like the best before sharing with students. Also included is a student directions sheet with three suggestions for advice starters, such as, "What is your best advice about studying?" and "What are the best things about your teacher?"

Ideas for using the digital GOOGLE Slides versions:

Color digital version-- You can share the color version with students to choose their favorite pennant. Students would then type their advice onto their pennant and share their completed version back with you.

Black & white digital version-- You can send this version to students for them to type their advice into and then print, color and photograph. Their photo can be of them holding their completed pennant as an added personal touch!

Or you can use the digital versions in your own creative way! The student direction slide in each of the digital versions is editable.

Students look up to older students, so their advice goes a long way. The completed pennants make great beginning-of-the-year classroom décor, especially for the very first days of the school year when classroom routines and expectations are being set.

Do you have a math word wall in your classroom?
