Pete! Our new class mascot :)
Behind that black paper was a very old chalkboard. It took me days to decide how to cover it. I finally hot glued bulletin board paper on to it and nailed my calendar and schedule up. Hot glue apparently sticks to everything! I hot glued those magnet clips for my job chart (on the ribbons) right to the wall and it sticks!
Classroom library disaster area.
I have been on a mad hunt for glitter clothespins! I finally found enough for each kid to display their work on my clothesline :)
Brownie points are my class-wide behavior system (from Sarah Cooley - First Grader at Last!). I LOVE this and my kids do too! We earn brownies for good behavior :) Once we fill it up or meet our goal, we earn something like extra recess or something else special.
And finally, I remade my bank this year! We use the coins to count the days in school, and I went ahead and slapped magnet tape on them and added a cookie sheet and chevron ribbon! However, magnet tape DOESN'T stick to plastic coins, so I had to hot glue every single coin. UGH.
That's it for now. A classroom tour soon :)
