I spend so much time online looking at all of these absolutely beautiful classrooms in complete awe.
They are gorgeous, show stopping and yes, I'm insanely jealous. And most of them are spot on in the material they have up on the walls. How do they do it?
Children really do reference the material on the walls around them. It is so important that the information up there is relevant, at their level (both physically and academically) and it needs to be consistent.
Here are some pictures of my past rooms and I distinctly remember students time and again referring to something I had posted on the walls. After looking through some old photos, I've decided to recognize my all-star wall posters.
2. Tip: I laminated sentence strips and used a pocket chart - SO easy to change out my weekly spelling words, story titles and the like. Actually, during fun Friday, some of my 2nd graders used to ask if they could have the honor of writing the spelling words for the upcoming week.
3. Use odd nooks and crannies for things like class rules and hand signal reminders - which if you haven't tried using signals in your classroom - I highly recommend them. Sorry the picture is so blurry - but you get the idea. I can't remember where I got these - I'm sure some wonderful seller on TpT - I have had them for ages!
