This is my new Fix Up Strategies board that my students refer to during guided reading groups and while independently reading. I now am on a mission to aquire more lamps....it provides a more comforting atmosphere AND it will help with the glare on these adorably useful strategies!!
I finished the bulletin board. The bucket fillers were first and then I decided on my reading comprehension posters because we use and refer to them so much!
Below I finished putting owl labels on each of the drawers. And I put in their library cards to keep track of their levels.
OK, so I have this tree and last year I really didn't embrace it. It made me mad! It was painted in the only spot where I could have had a second bulletin board!! This year I decided to treat it like an asset. It's a fabulous place to display student work. So I hung up a little owl that says, "Hoot, Hoot, Hooray! Look at our work today!" Then I painted clothes pins and attached them to a tack and shoved them in...they are green to look like leaves of the tree.
The little guy is so cute. Get your's here- Owl Signs
I finished my board: a place for Essential Questions for each subject, schedule, specials, a wee little calendar, direction cards from A Cupcake for the Teacher and containers to hold my board stuff.
And the header for the word wall.
Lastly, I finished my board (sans names) with cute little owls
Get your Look Whooo's in Our Class sign here.
I'm starting to have the teacher dreams. I can't fall asleep and I'm up WAY before the alarm. There is just SO much to think about.
Good luck to you,
