- You won't be seeing a lot of math posts this year!
- My entire classroom from decoration, instruction, to function is focused on reading.
These reading strategies subway art posters are by Hope King. They were exactly what I was looking for! If you get them, I would suggest taking them to Staples or Office Max to print. All that black ink would wreck havoc with your home printer. I also find that anything I have printed at Staples is much more vibrant than anything my dinky little printer can produce. After printing, I just laminated them. Easy peasy!
Once I had the posters, I needed something to pull it together. I made these READ letters to match the posters. I think it goes together really well. The lined letters match the "Good Readers" letters on the posters. I was going to put them up as a download for you, but I realized I used a font that was for personal use only. If I get a chance, I will try to redo them with a font I can publish for you.
In the past, I have decorated the outside of my room several different ways. I was able to find the past two years buried in my blog. That's one of the things I like about blogging. It keeps a great record of things I've done in the past, for better or worse!
In 2011, I had a simple sign that actually fits in with this year's color scheme.
In 2012, I went with some motivational signs.
And for 2013, we READ!
If you look closely in the picture above, you can see just a couple of the many, many boxes I have been unpacking the past two days. I don't dare show you the inside of my room just yet! However, in my next post I am going to share a project I found via an Instagram picture that I knew I just had to do for my room.
