In the world of elementary education, a glyph is craft-based activity. When finished, various attributes of the craft reveal personal information and/or opinions about the student.
More so, we all know how much kids like to talk about themselves. When making a glyph, EVERY STUDENT gets to respond to questions and share opinions about themselves! Now, even the students who don't feel comfortable speaking in front of others can share their opinions and/or facts about themselves!
Glyphs make great hallway displays. Be sure to hang the attribute chart with the display so parents, students, and staff can then see what each attribute represents.
This Shape Monster Glyph was also a class favorite.
Check out our hallway display, HERE.
To keep it simple, I like to think of glyphs as crafting with a purpose - educational, of course ;)
