My Woodland Owl Desk Tags with Hidden Zones are designed to bring elements of the growth mindset, Zones of Regulation, and goal setting into one simple, beautiful design. (If you prefer more traditional Zones icons, you can find them in my other listings.)
While the tag designs are constant, there are four different "I can" statements and a tag without:
I can give my best effort!
I can grow my brain today!
I can think deeply about my work!
I can learn something new every day!
Print your tags in landscape mode on regular 8½x11 paper. Color works best.
Cut, write in student names, laminate, and enjoy!
To incorporate zones: Give each student a paper clip and teach them how to self-monitor by clipping the side of their tag along the leaf color that corresponds to their zone.
To incorporate growth mindset: Use the tags with the “I can” statements, or write in your own.
To incorporate goal setting: I put a cup of vis-à-vis markers out for student use. As part of the morning routine, students grab a marker and set a goal for themselves by writing it directly on the laminated tag. At the end of the day, students evaluate if they’ve met their goal. Baby wipes are used to clean the tags as needed.
I hope you enjoy this product!
