Acrostics poems in the teacher's lounge affirming each staff member in the school. #valueoneanother pic.twitter.com/8FuSqfAou8— Robbyn Glinsmann (@GlinsmannMath) September 15, 2015
I saw this idea and immediately decided it would be the perfect project for my student council kids. I took a screenshot of the idea and sent it to my StuCo kids via Remind. At our next meeting, I had printed out each teacher's name. The kids broke up the teacher names and started coming up with descriptive words. Over the course of two lunchtime meetings, we wrote adjectives for each letter. A lot of teachers had a "Y" in their name. Have you ever tried to come up with a positive adjective that begins with a "Y?" Not easy.
Today, I printed them off on card stock with pretty fonts and hung them up in the teacher's lounge. There are 22 total. This includes all of our teachers, principal, counselor, secretary, custodian, Indian Education department, and lunch ladies.
I haven't got the reaction of the teachers yet, but I hope it puts a smile on their face when they walk into the teacher's lounge.
I started running our of room to hang them and had to get kinda creative.
