Have been procrastinating all month on this one, but soon we'll have to bit the bullet:
In How to be Cool in Third Grade, Robbie, the main character, discovered that the best way to be "cool" in third grade is not by wearing jeans or by avoiding his mom's kisses at the bus stop. Rather, he learned to be cool by letting his best qualities (being smart, nice, and funny) shine through. Create a poster that in some way shows your three best qualities. Be as creative and colorful as possible! On the poster, please also write a few sentences that describe how your three best qualities will be helpful in your third grade classroom this year.What if a child's best qualities don't include postering and visual creativity?
In particular, how well do the project's self-esteem promoting strategies serve this child?
