    Content Walls

    Hello Jenn

    Each wall of my classroom is a different content.

    For my science wall, I teach Air and Weather for all three second grade classes so I can leave it up for 4 to 5 months (nice, huh?). I have a title, weather chart (for daily graphing), Clouds that I fill with the facts we learn in each lab, one cloud filled with vocabulary, one cloud for questions we come up with while we are doing each lab, there is a section for newspaper articles on weather, and then drawings and work from the students.

    For my SS wall, one unit I teach is communities and on that wall I have a title, and then in the beginning of the unit I break it up into thirds for urban, rural and suburban work. Students decorate one type of community and write a description about it. For example, for the rural community students draw a barn, silo, farmhouse, farm, farm animals, tractor and dirt roads. Later on throughout the unit, I change it to community helpers.

    For my math wall, this is near the front of the room because I incorporate it into my whiteboard for morning meeting. I have graphing section, calendar, odd/even, money count, straw count, greater/less than chart, and skip counting chart.

    I hope this helps!
