Headbandz: Part 2

I know.  It’s been FOREVER since I was here.  And even after a blogging challenge. 😦

Oh well, I’m here now, right?  That’s gotta be worth something.  Here’s to a FABULOUS October on the blog.

Remember when I told you about how we played 5th Grade Headbandz?  Well, I didn’t get to tell you about what we did next.

After everyone had figured out whose name they had on their head, we were ready for step 2, which was really the fun part.  Each student had a picture (that we had taken on the first day) that was put in the middle of a 12 x 18 poster.  They got to write their name under it, and then we all got to write on it, too.  We rotated around to each others’ posters and wrote the things we like about them.  Especially now that we’ve been doing 3 Things, we know each other in better ways, and had more personal comments to make.  I do a version of this right at the end of the year, but have never thought of doing it at the beginning.  I’m really excited to see how differently we’ll be able to talk about each others’ strengths by the time we’ve spent the whole year getting to know each other!

Check out pics of our posters!

  1. dear mrs.bearden,

    • Mia,

      We missed you today! I’m sorry you’re sick. Do you think you’ll be back tomorrow? I’m glad you’re back on the blog…and it’s ok that you haven’t been here in a while–I haven’t either! I hate that! And yes, I have plans to do this again. Great idea, kiddo!

  2. Hey Mrs.Bearden!

    My name is Lilly, and I am in Ms.Turken’s class. We (Ms.Turken’s class) were looking at your blog today as an example, since we are going to create our OWN blogs! We read your post about headbandz, and we all loved it! (We also commented on it! 🙂 ) So I decided to look at part 2!
    I think this post is great. I really like that idea of people writing their names down and everyone puts something they like about one another. I will suggest that to Ms.Turken tomorrow. Again, great post!

    Your 5th grade friend,
