Using Symbols

At my daughter’s conference, it only took a few minutes for her to explain the kind of learner she is, using symbols.

She talked about wanting to feel safe and chose traditional Ghanaian symbols to portray that.
Being an inquirer she likes to ask questions and used the symbol of question marks.
She shared some of her feelings by drawing faces with different expressions. She used the spiral image to symbolize leadership and energy.
“Sometimes you have to take action,” she said.
What she loves to do is build and be creative. She used screw drivers, wood and hammers, to represent that.
Helping students understand the kind of learner they are can help develop independent learners. I believe these recognized traits will help my daughter within the classroom and everywhere.

I appreciate this activity and her teacher.
