The beginning of a school year is a great time to introduce more visuals to your class.
Many of us use post-its to remind ourselves of what we need to remember to do or what we need to remember to bring with us. Visuals serve the same purpose for our students – a gentle reminder of routines and expectations. With basics routines and expectations posted with visuals there is more mental energy left for unexpected or deeper level thinking.
Maybe you could write yourself a note on a post-it to remind yourself to make a few more visuals
