Happy Wednesday! So happy the week is going by fast! So close to Spring break I can almost smell it!!
Spring is finally here and it's almost end of the year. But instead of trying to clean up a bit and put stuff away, here I am creating a new bulletin board for my class!
This is what my bulletin looks like now…
I got these last year from Clutter Free Classroom and mixed it up with Rockin Teacher Materials. It was an awesome set with tons of different choices for the board. If you want to read a bit more about how I set it up and planned to use it, click here to take you to that post.
It's not that I don't love this board, I just think for my class this year, it just isn't for them. I will definitely try this again next year and see how it works with my new babies.
Okay after thinking..not hard of course…I came up with a sweet idea! I have been seeing this kind of idea lately on pinterest and thought it would be perfect!
Okay so picture this...
I don't have kids of my own but I can kind of figure out that this is how the conversation goes when my kids gets picked up from school.
Mom: Hey honey, what did you learn in school today?
LOL I figured, this bulletin can help kids remember what they learned that particular day. We can discuss in class all the new topics we covered and the things we reviewed. That way when they walk out, they have been refreshed with what they learn? Are ya with me? Okiee..
Well I started to make it mw own.
This is mid progress…
I use the letters from the previous bulletin to help me set up this one. I whipped this up so quick.
If you squint your eyes, you could see what I wrote! LOL
Here is a before and after shot. I just realized I have been doing those a lot lately!
My plan for this is, at the end of the day, I will ask my little ones "What Stuck Today". The point is for them to backtrack and think about all the things we reviewed and went over. Everything they come up with, I will put on a post it and slab on the "What Stuck" wall. I think it will be a fun way to get my little one's minds going, even if it is the end of the day. This way when their parents ask them what they learned, they can remember this!
It's worth a try and I am excited to get started!!
Have you guys tried this? How has it worked for you ?
I'd love to hear your thoughts!
