    Hi Janine, I am a new IB PYP music teacher. I have sooooooo many questions. First of all, how do you display/arrange/use the Learner Profiles and attitudes?

      Hi Tamela, and welcome to the PYP club! The Learner Profile is so central to the PYP, it’s important to display it in a highly visible area. That way, you can refer to it all the time; all behaviour issues are brought back to those points. I’ve displayed them with photos, as a lot of teachers do, but I find it’s hard to capture those things clearly in a photo, so I like to put up some sentences demonstrating what each one looks like in action. I’ve actually got a post coming up on the Learner Profile, so be on the lookout for that. I’ve also made posters for the Attitudes, which I use in the same way. If students are off-task, not working hard, etc., I always refer them back to the Profile or Attitudes. Having a common language across the school makes those messages much stronger!

    Hi Janine. I saw a graphic of the cultural iceburgon Pinterest credited to your blog. Do you sell a packet on TPT? If so I would love to purchase. Thank you!

      Hi Sue, you can find it here. I’m hoping to update it soon with some lesson ideas, but the pandemic has gotten me really behind on a lot of things. Thanks!
