I realize that it has been a SUPER long time since I have posted to my blog. (More than 2 months, actually.) So I have decided that I am not very good at posting regularly, but I will forgive myself and post when I have time.
I haven't shared pictures of my classroom yet this school year. So here are a few of my beginning of the year bulletin boards.
This is my favorite bulletin board. As you can see, it is my job board. Instead of having a list of jobs on the board with my students' names next to them, I just have one helper each day. (His/her name is on a dog bone that is attached to Clifford's collar with velcro.) That helper does whatever I need done. They lead our "Manners Song" at snack time, push the lunch bin down to the gym at lunch time, take names off the attendance board, etc. I have 16 students so they are able to have a turn every few weeks. I just feel like this is a much easier way for me to handle jobs in my classroom. (P.S. My student teacher did an awesome job of tracing a picture of Clifford for the board.)
This is a bulletin board I used to display our art activity from the first day of school. I found the activity on Kindergarten Days blog. Click here to see the idea.

I hope you have enjoyed a little peek at my classroom. Thank you for stopping by my little blog.
