No matter what grade I taught, my students LOVED making glyphs
They are a quick, easy
way to practice listening
and following directions
They also provide a "hard copy" to use as proof that a child does or doesn't.
Completed projects make an adorable bulletin board
, as each one will be different.
I've included a colorful “Our Glyphs” scarecrow poster
for the center of your display.
are also an interesting way to get to know
your students and build a classroom community
I’ve included several posters
you can show to explain directions, which are particularly helpful for younger children.
To practice data collection & analysis
, as well as process of elimination, have students pick a partner and try to figure out which glyph
I’ve designed the glyph
directions in such a way, that you can easily tweak
them to fit your needs and levels of your kiddos, making things super-simple
, or a bit more challenging
for older kiddos in order to test their listening skills
as well as comprehension
Be sure and make a sample of your own, so your students can get to know you as well.
After everyone is done with theirs, you can share yours and practice inference
by asking them questions.
Check the PREVIEW for samples.
I’m Diane from Teach With Me, hoping your students enjoy making a glyph
as much as mine do. Wishing you a fun-filled fall.
