When I posted my completed classroom pics I included a picture of my bulletin board that is just outside my classroom. On this bulletin board I posted My Classroom ABCs. I created these from a post I had read on The Corner On Character. I loved them as soon as I saw them and knew I wanted to use them in my classroom. I made a second set to use with my document camera. On the first day of school we read and discussed the ABCs together. I then had students choose one goal (one of the letters) they wanted to work on. They had to write this goal / quote down in their planners. Their only homework for the night was to discuss this quote with their parents and brainstorm ways they could work on their goal. I love that it is something concrete I can remind students of when needed.
I've had a few people request copies of these ABCs, so I asked Barbara for permission to post them. Thanks, Barbara! So, for a Sunday Freebie, click on the picture below to download your own copy.
