(This is me, stepping off my soap box now...) Back to your "speed" -- I don't have that... It seems to take me FOREVER to put a bulletin board together, much less my whole room - lol. As usual, I have spent my summer "puttering" around town (and online), gathering supplies, dropping by the school to work in short bits (shorter because we don't have full "air" in the summer). At least now I can say that some of my bulletin boards are up and ready to go and some of my "projects" are taking form.
My first few years of teaching were spent in Nebraska. One of my team teachers, Mrs. Smith, had a section of her classroom wall with 20ish class pictures all hanging neatly and the title "Mrs. Smith's Reasons For Teaching." I LOVED this and FINALLY have my own. Mine are not as neatly placed, because they are not all the same size, but my husband (ladder helper) and I figured it out and I LOVE IT:
|I have taught 6 years and the other frame is waiting for my current class.|
|Found these fun "frames" on sale at Michael's :)|
|Placed above our Helper Board and Family Board.|
|Placed above the Writing Center (not ready for photographing - lol)|
Here are just a few other parts of the room that are ready to go:
|I'm going to try these for my daily materials this year.|
Finally, a "shout-out" to my beautiful, creative daughter who painted my teacher stool and author's chair (Love you, Sassy!):
More to come...Thanks again for all of your inspiration out there! Happy Sunday!
