The first year I began teaching, one of my teammates shared with me this fantastic acronym for GROUPS. I thought I would post it and share it with you all. I have always had it hanging in my room, and have created small versions to hand out to students before they begin group work. Some kiddos even get to have one taped onto their desk. 🙂
I didn't create the acronym (though I have changed a few of the words over the years), but I will never have a classroom without it! I usually introduce it during morning meeting and we chat all week about what each of these ideas looks like and sounds like.
Edited to add: After this poster has been pinned thousands of times, I decided to share a printable version of the poster. Download your freebie HERE.
