I began to set up my classroom this week for the 2017-2018 school year. I always have amazing visions for my bulletin boards, but as you can see I struggle with keeping my letters straight. I even have a border to follow and they’re still uneven! This picture was taken after several attempts of stapling, pulling off, and stapling yet again. I guess I looked silly during this process and my little guy, Benjamin pulled up a chair and sat directly in front of the bulletin board with a huge smile on his face. I decided that his actions meant that the letters were good enough! 🙂
Travis thoroughly enjoyed his time in my room and was cutting and gluing everything that his little hands could grab. He told me that I’m very lucky that I get to play with all of these toys each day with my friends. I thought that was an interesting perspective and I agreed.
I’ve been very busy over the last couple of weeks planning our community outings and creating data sheets and lesson plans to accompany each outing. I created the bulletin board above with a vision for my students to track their progress towards their individual goals after each outing. I’m not exactly sure how I want it to look? Please share any ideas/thoughts that you have.
