My students need picture frames to use to hold a picture of each student with an "I Am" message and also hold a Word Cloud of "I Am" messages on the other side of frame.
I am fortunate to be part of a school that strives for excellence. We meet students' needs in rigorous teaching strategies and expect only the best from our students.
My school is proud to be a "Leader in Me" school that works on taking author Steven Covey's 7 Habits, making them age-appropriate and working them into our school campus, so that students begin to see their campus as a way to show leadership.
The "Leader in Me" is not a curriculum, but rather a way of doing life on the school campus through awareness of how we learn and grow, and how we speak and treat one another.
Students learning the habit of solving conflicts, then becoming conflict managers is just one way the Leader in Me program in action on our campus looks like. Students take the 7 Habits that are taught to them and begin to think of ways they can take ownership of their campus through leadership. Whether it's a 5th grader helping a 1st grader to read, students setting goals and overcoming academic obstacles, or students seeing a need to clean their campus, all are ways that the 7 Habits teach students to lead.
I was inspired by another teacher's project to encourage their students to think about what makes them unique. My students will first begin by thinking of one word to finish the sentence, "I Am..." with the encouragement to come up with a characteristic trait that models who they are. I will then write on their hand, which students just love the chance to write on their hands, the word they chose. I will take pictures of their face with their hand in front of me.
Then, students will do a Digital Story by creating a Word Cloud of other words they would like to use that gives story of their character traits.
I will print the picture and Word Cloud, and the requested hinged picture frames will be used to hold both, creating a present for the end of the school year. The requested wall decor photo frames will be used to create a display in the classroom of the photos of the students holding up their "I Am" message hands. I love this idea of allowing students to be the authors and creating their story with words of who they are and what they love most about themselves.
