A New Year..A New Start! Team Table Signs

Here's to a new start! I loved my last blog, but it needed a makeover, so here it goes! I can't tell you how excited I am for the new school year to start. I have come across a lot of fabulous ideas to put into practice as I open the doors to my new 2nd graders. Thank you fellow teachers out there! 

One practice that I have repeated year after year instills character traits that every child should understand and adopt. I combined cooperative group team names and character traits. In a cooperative group setting, it's always nice to have designated team signs. The team names I decided to incorporate are: Honesty, Integrity, Loyalty, Empathy, Redemption, Humble, Respect, and Equity are all character traits that children need to hear every day. By having the definitions at their fingertips and referring to them on a daily basis when teachable moments arise, makes the concepts so much more meaningful.
Research has shown how important repetition is in order to instill long lasting habits. Referring to the team names that are included on a daily basis definitely creates a classroom environment that fosters a positive attitude!

If you are interested in trying out Team Names that are based on Character Development, you can get them HERE.  I hope you enjoy them as much as my students have.

There are 8 large character trait posters and 8 small character trait posters. You can hang the larger team signs from above, or included are smaller team signs to be used with table top stands.
