Are your students obsessed with Emojis? My students love seeing them sprinkled around our classroom, it is a fun way to make your classroom feel more like their homes! Here are some ways to Emoji-fy (yes… I made up a new term) your classroom! Plus, there is a great giveaway for some of the products I am featuring from Creative Teaching Press at the bottom of the post!
Add a fun poster with a quick quote to help your students think about their attitude and their mood throughout the day. I tell my students to “check their attitude at the door”. I want them to come into the classroom ready to learn and sometimes that is really hard to do! Having this sign by the door helps them regulate their own mood.
Use a # to draw attention to a bulletin board title. You can use emojis to teach character traits! Have students choose an emoji that represents their character and then write a paragraph explaining their choice and include text evidence to back-up their thinking.
You can add emojis to your calendar to mark important events like birthdays, due dates or end of the quarter or even picture day! Simply use a blank calendar, calendar cards and emojis! How easy and fun.
This is going on my back-to-school list for sure! Have your students choose an emoji that they can relate to (make sure they pick appropriate ones) and make a personalized locker tag or cubby label!
You can get this look with: Emoji Cut-Outs (monkey and dress not included)
