This is what I see when I walk through the door. A big, white wall. UGGG! It won't be white for long!
To the right are the student computers.
On the left is a big, long, bulletin board.
Well, first thing first. I have to pick a color scheme.
Tip #1: Pick a pattern or theme and stick to it! Use 2 or 3 colors from the pattern or theme to keep the room looking put together. It also makes your room look more organized!
So, this is the color scheme that I chose this year, Dots on Turqoise. It is from Creative Teaching Press.
I love the colors!
Next step is to find out what is required to be posted on the walls and what I want to put on the walls.
Tip #2: Make a list of what you need and want to post on the wall. Then you can decide how much wall space is needed for each and decide where the best place would be.
My list so far:
1. Word Wall (required)
2. Target the Question (required)
3. Class Helpers
4. Class Rules
6. Daily 5 choices
7. Daily 5 Cafe Menu
8. Daily 5 Anchor Charts
9. ?? still thinking
