One of my biggest goals for this year was to create bulletin boards that represent our curriculum, tie everything together, and most importantly that are interactive and serve a purpose. With my goal of creating a Love of Language and dedicating more time to language and vocabulary study this year, I needed bulletin boards that would help me represent our Love of Language as it develops throughout the year. I created this bulletin board where I will post our Figurative Language and Context Clue examples for the week. This board should be in full action on Friday when I post examples. I will be sure to take another picture to share with you.
I used my messy (now sort of organized) storage cabinet for another component of our Love of Language studies. This is where I will display our Nifty Thrifty Fifty words as they are introduced. (We already have some posted from this week but I forgot to snap a picture of it.) Can you see that brown contact paper in the background? I think I found the perfect use for it and it ties in with my brown/aqua theme nicely.
Under our Love of Language bulletin board, I have created a space for us to classify our read alouds into themes. I think this is so important to get started with right away this year so that we can take our understanding of theme deeper as we reach for the common core standards.
