This back-to-school project can be completed as an individual craftivity or a class bulletin board display. While completing this activity, students will quickly come to recognize how they can take ownership over their own learning and how the good decisions they make today can positively impact their entire school year!
This craftivity begins with a class brainstorming session of positive choices students can make that will help them to "soar toward excellence" this year in school. Students then brainstorm independently on their planning paper.
After they have settled on three pledges they are willing to make, they begin to create their craftivity. Students write their name in one section, and three pledges in the other sections. Check the PREVIEW to see most of the pages of this product!!
Student-friendly directions (with photos) are included with the upper elementary version so that you can place the directions under your document camera, and students can refer to them as they complete the project.
