Using Student Photos to Teach Conventions

I love love love my fellow teacher friends- they help me become a better teacher on a daily basis :)

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:

Isn't this amazing! She doesn't blog, so I am sharing it with the blogosphere on her behalf :)

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 :)


  1. Love the pictures on your anchor charts! Anything that involves students' pictures get them 10 times as excited about it!

  5. It is a good way to let them learn the things. In traditional process a student can not be attracted towards this. I appreciate this. I am still poor in spellings and grammar. I have to use Dicfixers Business Proofreading services to get my offers letters proofread. I am thankful of them for this.
