As we get closer and closer to school starting, I'm finishing up little details but having to really think about some big ones. Like the bulletin board. Duh duh duhhh! What I'd love to do would be something like this fun mash up of all my favorite storybook cats:
But, how to get this onto a bulletin board? I don't really know. I guess the basic plan would be to use the overhead projector, trace it all out and then go back in with crayons or markers. Yeah. That might work next summer when I'll have a lot more time, but this summer I just don't see it happening. I still have cataloging, weeding and shifting to do plus creating my class schedule and my lesson plans. If I'm being realistic, I'm going to have to put this one on the shelf for now.
Our school has a theme each year and the teachers decorate their area (either above their doors or above their class lockers) with that theme. This year our theme is Adventure. The reading teacher already has "Reading is an adventure!" above her doorway...so what to do? I have a Pinterest board for bulletin board ideas, and I think I like the giant 3D book idea.
- Reading Makes Life an Adventure!
- Adventures in Reading
- My Adventure Book (from Up! from Disney Pixar)
- Choose Your Own Adventure! - with giant 3D book?
