1-2-3 Come Make Some Spring Glyphs With Me!
When I think of spring I think of bunnies, eggs, and butterflies, so I designed some cute glyphs with those things in mind.
My Y5's really enjoyed making glyphs. Completed projects make wonderful bulletin boards, and they are a quick, easy and fun way to whole group assess listening and following directions.
This was a report card standard for my Y5's. So that this is not just my "opinion" that was made through observing their child, a glyph provides nice "paper proof."
If a parent ever questions why you feel their child is not listening and following directions, or asks you for "proof", a file of incorrectly done glyphs is a terrific resource.
After I took down this spring bulletin board, I kept completed glyphs in my assessment folder.
I paperclipped incorrect ones together, and put them on the top.
I also kept an answer key, so that I had a correct comparison for parents to peruse, as they looked at them side-by-side, and I pointed out problems.
After conferences, I'd send those glyphs home and start fresh.
The photographs are of completed glyphs. As I stated above, each Glyph makes a sweet bulletin board on their own, but you could also combine them.
Have students cut out their eggs and then use them as a border, scatter the bunny glyphs on the board, cut out and hang the butterfly glyphs back-to-back, and at different lengths from the ceiling, or "resting" on the wall.
For a more 3D effect, fold the wings up, and just tack down the thorax portion.
Glyphs and graphing are also wonderful ways for your students to collect and analyze data, which will help you review the Common Core State Standard: 1.MD.4
