I had this great idea - or part of one - to set up a bulletin board in the my room to start the year that focuses on graduating from HS. I teach 7th and 8th grade, and the HS we feed into does not exactly have the greatest graduation rate. Back in May, I picked up some decorations from the dollar store and want to create something to focus the kids on graduating and help them set some goals. One of the ideas (that won't go on the board) I had was to have them write a letter to themselves that they will open when they graduate. But for the actual board.. I'm stumped. I have a banner that says "Congratulations" and I will put "Class of" and the year each of my classes will graduate, but then I'm not sure what else. Any fantastic ideas out there?
Again, I'm hoping to focus it on their goals during the next 5-6 years (depending on grade level) and inspiring them.
Goal #1 - Reach 168 and a "healthy" BMI.
Eat well and exercise. The "secret" to a healthy lifestyle!
