The Learner Profile plays a pivotal role in the development of every student in a PYP school. Along with the Learner Profile are the 12 PYP Attitudes which play just as important a role.
Each year, I try my best to identify and recognize students who authentically and genuinely demonstrate the Learner Profile and PYP Attitudes in PE class. It may be a simple act, but these simple acts are very worthy of recognition in my opinion. I feel great when I can capture these moments on camera and share them with the students and my fellow teachers.
As you can see by the picture, I identify which attribute or attitude was exhibited in PE class and add a detailed description as to why this student is so deserving of the recognition. I will then post the recognition award on my PYP PE display board in the main corridor of the school for all to see. It often serves to motivate students to try their best in PE which is all that can can hope for and expect. This is my first recognition award of the 2012-2013 school year. Once the award is taken down from the display board, it is filed away in the student's Sportfolio.
