Thinking ahead to my Advisory class, I wanted to do something different on the first day of school. In the past I had students create a Puzzle Piece to show how we all "fit in". This year I am going to create a classroom banner with my Advisory students. I was inspired by this banner I saw on Pinterest. If I print them on colorful paper it will add some interest to my room.
I am thinking of using a separate journal booklet instead of having students write in their Interactive Notebook. Haven't decided. I quickly put together this booklet in case this is something I would like to do. Print as a stapled booklet. Students can color the front cover. Store them in your classroom or in the back of their Interactive Notebook using a pocket.
