We are super because...

Thought I'd share our beginning of the year bulletin board with you all! 

It is titled: "Presenting the superkids..."

There were two parts to creating this board. First, my wonderful paraprofessional put together a "super themed" street scene and created blue and red capes out of butched paper. She then took a photo of each student laying across the city scene as if they were flying through the air. The kids got to select which color cape they wanted! Here are a few examples:

Then we completed the "super themed" writing piece to go along with our photos. We had a discussion about what makes us super and/or what are some super things we do or actions that we can take that superheroes do as well. Here are some examples of our work:

"I am super because I do my best work."

"I am super because I am responsible". (This may have been a day where we really hit home our PBIS expectations ;))

Here is the template if you'd like as well in English/Spanish.- Just click on it! (I tried to add the accent with a line to "súper in the Spanish" version, but I could not figure out how to create a line small enough. So I just "sharpied" it. Yes I just created a new verb.)


  1. This is seriously so amazing! I did a double take when scrolling down through your pictures and seeing those flying kids. Truly love this!

    1. Thanks Candis! I really like how it turned out, and the kids thought it was so funny!
