INSPIRATION). Thanks to Simply 2nd Resources for making the super cute letters that match my theme exactly! This activity is something new that I am trying this year, so I have been thinking about the logistics of how I am going to manage it. I think I'm going to change the letters once a week (probably on Monday) and I wanted to find a way that I could quickly make the change without taking a lot of time. I went to the dollar store this morning and bought 36 clothespins and 300 tacks and glued them together. Then after taking A LOT of time perfecting the spacing, I put the pins into the wall where each of the letters would go. I think this is going to work well, and I'm very happy about the way it turned out!!
On a side note, I might show my students the math work that I had to do to figure out the correct spacing for each of the letters. Hopefully some will see that the math we do in class will help them in the future!
As for the rest of my classroom...
Outside my door - Wordle with all my students' names.
View from the door.
View from the classroom library.
Classroom library - Waiting on my Vista Print order to finish the wall over the shelves.
My reading board isn't quite finished. I spent a lot of time this year organizing all my books by genre. I am using Classroom Organizer for students to check out books.
Science & reading.
Window banners & tissue pom-poms. I spent a lot of time making all of those pom-poms!
My desk. Gonna add more about me on the bulletin behind my desk.
I also made this Today's Number poster today too (INSPIRATION). I like the idea of students practicing these skills everyday with different numbers. I'm not sure if I am going to have my students complete this as morning work or a warm up during math. I may even do it every other day... Not sure...
