    Bulletin boards

    Hi Yo,
    Truthfully, when the kids come in, my bulletin boards are completely bare; just nonfade paper in restful colors with a border that will stay up the entire year. One of the first getting to know you activities is for the children to brainstorm a list of things they'd like to know about their new classmates. I type this for them and they start interviewing one another. These completed interviews are shared and posted along with first day photos I take (it's always nice to have each child have individual photos on the first day and the end of the school year). It stays up usually til the first Open House / Curriculum Night. I have a board ready for a word wall and a daily schedule chart. Once the children and I have developed the preliminary classroom expectations, these are also posted. If you are a 3-6 GL teacher, you should get the Guiding Readers and Writers book by Fountas and Pinnell. Awesome resource for procedural lessons plus skills and craft as readers and writers. It outlines a possible set of first lessons (gets you thru the first month of school!) for Language or email if you'd like additional support! ;-D
