Fair

I saw this saying recently on Pinterest and absolutely LOVED it 
and knew I simply had to make it into a sign! 

Every teacher and parent in the world has heard the words "That's not fair!" countless times.  
When working with gifted kids or special ed kids who receive modifications and services that other students do not, this saying is a great reminder of what fair really means! 

fair isn't

  5. Thanks for this. "That's not fair" has become an all too familiar sentence with my students lately. This will be posted in my classroom along with a class chat.
    Cheers,

  6. This is a Rick Lavoie quote from F.A.T. City. The second part is "Fair is everybody gets what he or she needs." Great video. One that every educator should watch.

  8. I explain to kids that they really don't want things to be fair (as they define it) because then every time someone broke a leg (etc.), they'd have to have a broken leg too.

  10. I posted this sign in my classroom and it brought up a very inspiring conversation with my students. They have spent so much time on fair they have never thought about it. I talked about with regard to what we each need, starting with glasses and crutches. Then I pointed out politely some of things I have done in art room for some of them, particularly regarding seating and different tools. Thank you, I have shared your site with all the teachers in my building, and many in my daughter's.

  14. Thank you for this. My husband and I are both teachers and we were just talking about this recently after one of the kids in his volleyball team accused him of being unfair. Hubby is planning to print a copy of your poster and tacking it to his door tomorrow morning.

  15. Thank you so much. God bless you. This will help in all my lessons as I have varied groups and they always complain about how unfair it is to receive different work.
