This is a spur of the moment thing that I came up with while teaching K-2 students. In order to encourage them to quiet down in the hallway I said I needed them to act like ninjas. Why?
- Ninjas aren’t just quiet, they’re silent.
- Ninjas don’t swing their arms around like in martial arts movies, as that would get them noticed.
- But most importantly: When a ninja wants to get things done, they do it very, very well.
I made other posters to go along with this that included a lot more information, but this one’s my favorite. The original’s an .svg file so I can scale it up or down as much as I want. The art is from images I found on openclipart.org and modified in Inkscape.
Brilliant! Can’t wait to share with my little ninjas.
