Love That Teaching Idea! Staff
Submitted: November 9, 2002
a class mascot and motto for your classroom. Send a note home to studentds before
the year begins and tell them to look for the mascot welcoming them at the door.
Put the mascot and motto on letterhead, awards, etc. This helps build unity and
a spirit of teamwork in your classroom. Some examples of mascots and mottos might
- a Leopard: Mrs. Smith's Class - a place where everyone has
a Frog: Mr. Bodily's Class - a "toadally" awesome place to be!
an Eagle: soaring to new heights together
the Bears: where learning is "beary" fun
