1. My Frame Wall!
On the first day of school I take pictures of my kids and put them in these frames. Instead of rushing to have the kids write something I just put their names under their pictures this year. It was just a temporary idea, but I noticed that the kids used the names all the time when they were writing letters in centers so I left their names up. The point of it was for it to feel like a family photo wall. It has added a great sense of community in our room!
2. My Author of the Month Wall.
The kids look forward to reading these books. I wanted to do this since I began teaching but I didn't have enough books for each author. I decided to invest in books and it has paid off! My kids use the books to make predictions and write stories about the ones that we haven't read yet.
3. My objectives board.
I have struggled with ways to post my objectives but I found the solution thanks to my Cricut! Now the objectives look nice and organized while being useful!
4. I know, it's supposed to be three, but this isn't really an area and I love it so much! It's the string that hangs across my room. The kids love seeing their work on display this way.
So now head over to Flying into First and link up your classroom photos!
