Character Freebie - From Crayons to College

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.

Happy Sunday!!!

  1. I totally love these! How great would it be if every elementary student in America saw these posters everyday? So generous of you to give it away for free too.

  2. Awesome, Jen - thanks for authenticating our work! There's actually a company called Learning Zone Express that asked to use these ABCs to make a poster, so who knows, Rachel Lynette, your wish may be their command! They won't give it away for free, but hopefully it'll be reasonable.

  3. Thanks, Rachel! It's really Barbara from The Corner on Character that deserves the credit. It's her idea - I just made the posters for my classroom.

  4. Thank you for sharing! I loved these when you posted them the first time. My students sometimes need reminders of some of those good qualities needed to succeed in life!

  5. Wow this is awesome. I'm going to print it out and bind it together in a book. Then we can read it as a class and kids can read it during reading time too.

  10. Really like this idea! I teach 8th and 9th grade. Going to put these up on the wall of my hallway. We try to get them focused on college, who knows, maybe some of these will stick! Thanks again!

  12. Hey Jen -

    I took Lindsay's suggestion and made our ABCs into a book yesterday - then blogged about the collaboration in today's post. Thanks again for a fruitful partnership!

  14. I really love this. Maybe we can post it on a bulletin board either at the entrance to our school or by the cafeteria (two places EVERYBODY goes).

  15. I was wondering if I could get one where behaviour is spelled behavior and judgment is spelled judgement? If that is possible, can you let me know? thank you
