Attention-Getting Fall Glyphs!
Glyphs are a quick, easy and fun whole-group listening and following directions tool that can be used for assessments.
During conferences, if you have to prove to parents that their child is not listening and following directions, glyphs are a perfect example to haul out and share.
Since listening and following directions is a standard on most report cards, glyphs are a fun way for students to show you that they can do that.
Completed glyphs also make an interesting bulletin board or hallway border display. By having students write their names on the BACK of their glyph, you can challenge them to try and figure out whose glyph belongs to whom.
Have children interview their classmates, collecting and then analyzing their data, which is also a standard for many. This 18-page packet includes graphing and tally mark extensions, so you can cover these math concepts as well.
My Young Fives LOVED doing glyphs, so I dreamed up one for just about every month. To view other glyphs, click on the link. More Seasonal Glyphs
Thanks for visiting today. Do you have a glyph you could share with us? I'd enjoy hearing from you firstname.lastname@example.org or take a moment and leave a comment here.
It's a gorgeous fall day! Outside my office window, I can see some of the trees starting to turn and a few yellow leaves floating in the breeze, as they spiral to the ground, seeming to avoid the busy squirrels scampering willy nilly.
I think it's time for a break. Chloe, my poodle pup, will enjoy a brisk walk too. Wishing you a wonderful weekend.
