Citizenship Anchor Chart

I am linking this post up with Maria for Make a Difference Monthly. This month's trait is citizenship. Here is one thing I do to promote good citizenship in my classroom.

Here is a cute group activity I did in my classroom to promote good citizenship. As a class, we brainstormed ways we can be good citizens. Then, I wrote them all on a chart. Everyone signed the chart and we hung it in our classroom. I know the chart is kind of plain, but, I did this activity before Pinterest and blogging taught me to make more exciting charts! Next year's chart will have fancy letters and illustrations!

  1. Sometimes plain is all we need. I like your chart because it is easy to read and colorful!
    I like how you had everyone sign it because it gives ownership and therefore accountability!

  2. Love this anchor chart. I have a few on my to do list. Love that your kids sign it!!

  3. I like how the students signed it. I like plain!

  4. Sometimes I wonder how much the kids really care about fancy. What's important is that the chart represents the kids and that it's usable information. Your chart looks just right to me. :)

  5. Just pinned your chart. I love the idea of brainstorming ways to be good citizens. Great idea! I agree with everyone above. It is the content on the chart that matters and that kids can read it. So, yours is perfect!
