New Year's Resolutions... Learner Profile Style...

Ok so... one of my resolutions was to blog 3x a week. Who was I kidding?! I am lucky to get on here and even READ the blogs I follow 3x a week, let alone type up posts! Maybe I should shoot for 1-2x a week.

But this post isn't about my resolutions. It is about my students' resolutions. See, I teach at an IB candidate school and we are about to have our authorization visit. My bulletin board plan was to do something with the Learner Profile words. But, I still wanted it to be cute. I can't resist cute. So I decided we would review the learner profile (some examples are communicator, thinker, reflective, balanced, etc) and then choose the one that each student wanted to do better at. I had full intentions of actually doing this in a technology format (think iPad craft) but I ran out of time. Then I remembered seeing the CUTEST resolutions craftivity from The Lesson Plan Diva on TpT and I could NOT resist. (You can find it here if you are interested in saving it for next year because she is going to update it yearly- so it really is a good investment if you ask me.)

Students each picked the one trait they needed to work on and then wrote why they wanted to be better at it, 2 ways to do it, and why it would help them in school. And then they made the craft. I had my kids just color theirs instead of printing it on construction paper, but you could easily print on construction paper. I decided to hang them in my classroom instead of the hall and will be hanging something different in the hall (long story, not important). I just love how cute they look hanging there and my kids are so proud of them!

Please don't mind the is a cell phone pic.
