Since I don’t have a classroom of my own to set up this year, I dropped into a friends classroom to offer my bulletin board expertise (I LOVE decorating for the year and begged for her to let me help). She is teaching first grade for the first time this year and wanted a fun theme. Dr. Seuss is perfect! I hunted down some good Dr. Seuss quotes that would tie in with what she wanted to display on the bulletin boards and we set to work pulling it all together. I think it looks great!
The room turned out so cute! Right now the calendar has purchased numbers on it, I suggested that she take pictures of all of the kids holding up their class number and using those as numbers on the calendar. She only has 19 students this year so for the additional numbers she is going to have specialist teachers and admin hold up numbers. To tie in with the Dr. Seuss theme, she is going to use Photo Booth’s green screen background to insert a Dr. Seuss background for the kids. The kids will wear a Cat in the Hat hat for the pictures. 🙂 It is going to be cute!
My favorite touches in the room are that each bulletin board is designed for student interaction or to display student work or accomplishments. I can’t wait to see it when all of the student work is up!
