Please and Thank You Posters

Today, I want to share some please and thank you posters I created for my classroom. These are words I want to hear more in my classroom.

I decided if these words are that important to me, they need to be on display in my classroom as a reminder to myself and to my students.

Harry Wong emphasizes the importance of using please and thank you in your conversations with students in his book The First Days of School: How to Be an Effective Teacher.  I also want to hear my students saying these two words in their conversations with one another.

I really like the idea of the importance of the word "yet'," especially with students who haven't previously had much success in math.

Me too! I want this year to be one where students really focus on their words. Words have power. If they can learn to say "YET" I think it can lead to big changes for them. The growth mindset is so much about the words we say aloud and internally. I'm hoping that changing my students' words can change their lives - or at least their outlook on math.
