I have been slaving away in my classroom– and I am finally seeing things come along! Our school-wide theme this year is camping. So I’ve scoured the internet for many different kinds of ideas ranging from owls to forests. You can find a TON of owl things– but not a lot of just “camping” stuff. Today I finished my hallway bulletin board– here it is:
My kids made those little sleeping campers at the end of last year– the poem is called “Sleeping Bag”. I told them to try and make the head look like their real heads– I think they came out pretty cute! For my doorway I made a log cabin:
We also glued green paper along the bottom of our 4th grade hallway– along with all the little skunks and birds and porcupines our kids made last year:
Inside the room I have a TON of bulletin board space:
|“Zizzer Tickets” are our positive reward system. The kids get a party when they earn 100 tickets for good behavior.|
|My math board– I will change out the info depending on what we are studying.|
|My AR board– the kids write their points on their s’more.|
|My reading board/corner– I have 2 more beanbags to add!|
|What’s for lunch– I’m going to clip the menu on the plate. And, of course, my birthday bugs.|
I finally finished (I think) the area where I’m storing all my writing supplies and center activities:
I also glued some bright owls to my door:
And fixed up my student “job” area– which is the door of my closet (the key is utilizing the space given)
And my desk area– I had them move the file cabinets to beside my desk– which is MUCH better than across the room. I am looking forward to having it closer! Sorry my desk itself is a mess– my computer still hasn’t been completely set up– so I can’t really finish it up yet.
The end is in site!
