My phone finally decided to cooperate and let me upload my classroom pictures. I’m doing a bee theme of course, so you’ll see that incorporated everywhere. I still have a bit more work to do, but I’m happy that I’m pretty much finished.
This is the largest bulletin board in my room. This is where I am going to post the students’ work throughout the year. I saw this idea on Miss Nelson's blog here.
Here is my focus wall for ELA and Math. You can grab it below.
Here is my quality wall. The items are included in the document above.
Here is what I’m most proud of! I’m moving away from the traditional color-coded behavior system where students pull their color (pull your green card, pull your yellow card). This summer I read about clip chart behavior and I love that it does not focus on bad behavior like I feel the color-coded system does. Our school rewards students with good behavior through PBIS but I wanted a way to recognize them in the classroom, especially when they go above and beyond what I ask of them.
Grab all of these items below. I’ve included everything you see in the picture including punch cards which correspond with “clipping up”. It goes along with the reward system I plan to use for my students. Now, the only thing you won’t see are the reward tickets. I haven’t created them yet for my classroom.
Here is my birthday wall. I saw this idea on Pinterest I believe. I’ll photograph my kids during the first week of school and put their pictures on their respective birthday month. Grab it below.
And finally, this is my AR wall. Students will put a green bee on the board with their name if they score 80% on their test and an orange bee if they score 100%. I thought about creating it as they earn points, but this will work for now! If you’d like this one, just email me and I’ll send it. It’s bee themed and I know that only a few people use it as a theme, but I would be happy to share!
