A look around our classroom!
Our classroom is a very awkward shaped room , so when decorating it, I knew I had to be creative. There isn’t much room for the students’ work, nor is their adequate space for the students to participate in. When creating the bulletin boards, I knew I had to make them interactive. This allowed a space that the students could go to and participate in that part of the curriculum.
So here is a look at some of my favorite parts of the classroom:
The writing bulletin board doesn’t only remind the students of the critical stages of writing, but it also gives an interactive opportunity for the students to participate in the writing process. Each student has a clothespin with their name on it. They get to move it along with where they are in their writing. It also allows me to visually see where the students are in their writing and who is waiting to conference with me.
The reading board in our classroom displays a poster to what we are currently learning. This poster was created with the class through our conversations. Below the poster you will see our a section called “Peer to Peer Book Recommendations”. This is a place where students can write about the books that they enjoy in our classroom library. This creates an opportunity for the students to find new books that they might like to read.
This is the math board in our classroom. What you’ll see right now on the math board is our number grid. This grid is what we are currently using in our math. It provides a great visual for the students to how the numbers relate to one another. Such as, when you skip a line, you are adding ten to that number. When you go to the right of a number, you are adding one, etc. Also on the board is POW, standing for “Problem of the Week”. The problem of the week is an opportunity for the students to earn a class ticket. When they finish their work early, they can attempt POW. On Friday, I will go over the problem and the answer.
That’s all for now Hope you enjoyed our interactive bulletin boards!!
