Open House is Monday night and school starts on Wednesday. I wish my summer wasn’t ending! I have spent a lot of time at the school last week and this week. I have all of the major things done. The thing I am most excited about is my word wall!
A couple pf years ago I was looking up word walls on the internet and found a picture of someone’s word wall that stuck with me. It was made to look like a wall and it said “Humpty Dumpty sat on a word wall.” I decided to create my own version! My husband made me some little eggies to put the letters on and my mom covered the door with brick paper. She also made Humpty Dumpty for me! He’s missing his arms and legs right now. They are waiting to be laminated. His legs are going to fold over making him look like he’s sitting criss-cross-applesauce. Here it is:
The y’s look a little “off” because the lowercase i Ellison die cut letter is missing. We had to use the uppercase Y and cut it a little to make it look lowercase.
Here’s a peek at my classroom library:
I love my rainbow canopy! I’ve had it for over a year. I couldn’t really hang it up last year because it got in the way of my old word wall. The “Reading Corner” sign on the wall is from Uppercase Living. Two teachers at my school sell UL. I’m so excited to have the rainbow cushions for the kids to sit on this year. I got them from Lakeshore this summer when they had a buy one get one 50% off sale. 🙂
This might be where I keep my kiddos’ book boxes. (I haven’t made lables yet.) The shelf next to it will hold more. (See all those extra book boxes stacked up? That’s what my classroom library books used to be stored in until I got the colorful baskets from the Dollar Tree.
I updated my specials schedule with my ThistleGirl graphics. You can make one of these for yourself using the free file here: FREE Special Classes Visual Schedule Cards
This is the beginning of my FACE of a reader bulletin board. My signs are just stuck up there with thumb tacks for now.
My bulletin board in the hallway. I used the same one last year. I really like it!
Still got a lot of things to do before Monday but I plan on having some fun tomorrow (shopping!)
