Thirteen days left and I am already anticipating my changes for next year!
One of the changes I want to tweak is my classroom culture. I want students to feel like they’re entering another sub-school when they enter my room.
One way I’m going to do that is to recognize an “Estudiante Brillante del Mes” each month! This is something that my school does not currently do, and as I have the best and brightest in my classes I feel they need to be recognized.
I’m planning on dedicating a bulletin to these students each month (which will include a picture in my sombrero!), doing a Secret Santa style week (Mon – favorite gum, Tues – something your favorite color, Wed – favorite pop, etc), and writing a brief synopsis to be included in our school paper as well our small local newspaper each month.
Here’s what I’m toying with for my Estudiante Brillante award:

I look forward to sharing more ideas with you all!
