I briefly described the circumstances of naming a class with a motivational name in an article about class project Dragons.
I set the motivational name for the class project Pirates this time before the beginning of the next school year with new first-graders and we sailed together pirately this time for two years .
Class Project – Motivation
A strong inner motivation for me was that the freshman did not leave with any negative reaction to the fact that he was wearing a brown balloon, because it was assigned to us, just not unattractive, brown.
So this time the class mascot – a Pirate Parrot, welcome documents, and class pirate ships with names trying to reach Treasure Island.
Thanks to his parents, pirate flags, pillows, chests, binoculars and other props, which undoubtedly belong “on the class deck” and completed during the first month, completed the class deck background with everything. p>
The children, parents and grandparents were enthusiastic, and I enjoyed it all the more and confirmed that the school class can also bear the name. And with pride. And big. And that it’s not as “inappropriate and nursery” as I’ve ever heard from some. I believe that this has its justification and meaning.
