Last week I posted some photos of my PowerPix walls, Class Leaders wall, Genius Ladder, Scoreboard, Practice Cards, and Rules. I've had a few questions about how my Class Leaders wall, and I'm thrilled to share!
My Class Leaders wall has a Class/Yes leader, Mirror leader, Teach/Okay leader, Rules leader, Hands and Eyes leader, PowerPix leader, Mighty Oh Yeah! leader, Mighty Groan leader, Human Counter leader, and Stopwatch leader. I don't utilize every leader every day, however I do use a Class/Yes leader, Mirror leader, Teach/Okay leader, Rules leader, Hands and Eyes leader, PowerPix leader, Mighty Oh Yeah! and Mighty Groan leaders daily. I put one Velcro dot on each leader spot on my wall, and then I took pictures of my kiddos by themselves. I then laminated the pictures and put a Velcro dot on the backs of their pictures. When I choose my leaders, and I choose them according to leadership quality and homework, I place their picture on the leadership position they are going to hold that day. I then place a button on their desk that they will wear throughout the day. They are super pumped about seeing their pics on the wall and getting to wear the buttons. I don't use them every time I need something, so I can keep them on their toes a bit. When I need a Class/Yes, I simply point to or tap that class leader on the shoulder. This goes for all my other leadership positions. My PowerPix leader is one I'm really excited about because they can get up in front of the class and review PowerPix we've already learned about so far this year!
I have a few students that haven't been able to be leaders yet this year, but they really want that leadership position. I have explained to them what it takes to be a leader in my classroom. This has improved their behavior in my room...not to the point of leadership yet, but they're getting close.
I hope this helps explain my leadership wall a bit.
