Where Are We Posters

Check out this link for the inspiration.

I need to spend just a moment to gush on all of her awesome ideas! This is just one of few, so if you haven't already start following her now!! 

So anyway, if you have checked her update, she used Power Point to create posters with her polka dot theme.  She created two

1.  Where are We?  Provide options to let others know when your class is not in your room
2.  What do we have today?  Let kids know whether they have Art, Music, or Pe

or here (for the owl one) Owl

I will make paperclips like the one she showed in her blog and hang this on the door while we are gone.
I will put this on our whiteboard.  Then I will either with a Vis a Vis or a mag letter or something designate which group is going to which special.  We have Mandarin Chinese at our school as the fourth special and in 3rd, 4th, and 5th our classes are split into four groups (A,B,C, and D).  This is to promote friendship with students in other classes.  For example, on Day 1 A would go to Art but another fourth of my class (group B) would go to Music, etc.
This is the owl one I created for a friend.


Classroom update - we still have not heard when we can get into our classrooms.  I did get a brief chance to look inside and the new classrooms look so awesome.  I will post pics as soon as I can!!
