Classroom CULTURE - Goodbye Greeting Cards with Rhyming Animal Theme (free)
Includes student choice.
Suitable for primary / elementary school.
Have you thought about individually farewelling your students at the end of lessons or the day? Connect individually with your students as you send them out the door. Let students choose from these cute animal cards and extend by inventing an action for each card / animal.
Either print the poster with all the greetings and display at your room exit. Have students line up at the door for farewells. As a specialist teacher, this works the best for me and its a great way to learn/reinforce names too.
When introducing, simply go through the examples in order, quickly farewelling each student on their way. They enjoy waiting to see what farewell they get.
Once students become familiar with the farewells, let them farewell you instead with the animal of their choice.
Extend by requesting an action to go with the animal farewell - examples included.
If you are dismissing at the end of the day from the mat, you can also use the poster or laminate and cut into cards. Draw from the pile or let student draw.
