One of my besties teaches 2nd grade at my school and I was chatting with her after school the other day- about nothing school-related, I'm sure ;)- and saw the CUTEST idea on her language study anchor chart:
Love this idea- she takes pics of the kids the first week of school and prints out several copies of each (using either a printer or the super-cheap photo deals that come around for pennies per print), and viola!
She said that each rule becomes that child's rule and they never ever forget it!
PS- We use Daily Language Instruction at our school to teach proofreading and conventions and really like it!
I saw another super-cute picture idea floating around Pinterest:
Do you use photos in creative ways in your classroom? I would love to have some new ideas to add to my stockpile for next year :)
