First I found an inexpensive thrift store frame. Then I taped free paint chips to a poster board.
I used Mod Podge to add a title to the frame's glass. I also wrote student names on the glass above each paint chip with a Vis a Vis, although a dry erase marker would have sufficed as well.
(I doubt Beverly has bugs in her house, but I do! Ugh.)
I'm going to invite my kids to use it as a tool to let me know what they want me to ask them about. Their little post-it notes will be my clue that I've got some inquiring to do. Once I've asked a student about their post-it and removed it from the frame, they can add a new one. Of course, this doesn't mean that I'll only talk to kids about their lives if they've written something down. That would be silly, but I do hope it makes me aware of more and more details of their lives.
Thanks Tara for another Monday Made-It!
