Graphics are a great way to make something clearer and easier to understand. I am constantly bookmarking and saving interesting posters and infographics that I find on the web. Today, I'm sharing five with you that I think are most relevant for classrooms and libraries, focusing on social emotional health, growth mindset, physical movement, and (surprise-surprise) reading!
So, Take5 mintues and spend some time checking out these thought provoking graphics. Do they resonate as much with you as they do with me?
I love this post from We Are Teachers about bringing more positive language into the classroom (or library)!
This graphic from GoZen explains ways that a child's anxiety comes out -- helpful reminders for teachers everywhere.
I love this Growth Mindset Self-Talk alphabet created by Kristin Wiens (she creates a lot of fun graphics -- follow her on Twitter @kwiens62).
I'm a big fan of movement in the classroom at every level -- even secondary (or perhaps I should say, especially secondary, once recess has been taken out of the picture). This graphic from JustStand.org shares the value of physical activity, brain breaks, purposeful movement integrated into learning, and more.
And of course, how could any librarian resist this recent infographic from Scholastic called Your Brain on Books? Scholastic even offers it poster-size, easy to print out and hang in your classroom or library to share the many reasons why reading is good for all of us!
Have you encountered any cool infographics lately that are worth sharing in your classroom or with your teaching colleagues? We'd love to see them too!
