Do you use glyphs in your classroom? I have used them some in the past and usually do one the first day of school. They hold a lot of information and are fun to hang outside the classroom door with the key for everyone to try and decode.
Since I’m doing the whole cooking/café thing this year I thought it would be fun to make one up with a chef. I couldn’t find a chef that I liked to work for both boys and girls (and I am not a great artist) so I found one for each at Scrappin’ Doodles. I tried to keep my questions generic enough to work for both, but still give me some insight into my new kiddos.
From these glyphs I’ll be able to tell if they know vowels from consonants. If they know the month their birthday falls. If they know their left from their right, and if they like/can read, write and know their colors. I will know who brings their lunch and who eats a hot lunch, and much more. But most importantly I will see who can follow directions the very first day of school!
Do you use glyphs in your classrooms? If so what kind and how do you use them? I’d love to see and learn about yours.
