    I've discovered that I get more out of my educational posters if I introduce them and slowly put them up throughout the year.

    My first year I put up lots of educational posters. On occasion I would refer to them and kids would say, "I didn't notice that was there." So now I start with my room looking a bit sparse, but decorated and as we begin to learn about something I will start the morning by sharing a poster and ask the kids to look at it and tell me one thing they can learn from the poster. They are so smart...they always come up with more than I had in mind.

    I also always start off the year by having kids make a quick project that shares something about them and putting it up in the classroom. I usually hang them from the ceiling. I think having something personalized in the room helps to get them comfortable. I use wire hangers and yarn to hang things from those metal things that hold up the ceiling tile.

    I think you did good getting your room ready. You can always add and delete as the year goes on.
