Around the classroom…

Around the classroom…

Here are some new things I have going on in my classroom.
I now post the “I can” statements on the board for each grade.

I also have a Free Draw Challenge. It’s a list of challenges for them to do if they have extra time and want to “free draw.” In the past, I let them draw whatever on their free draw paper and sometimes I would get nice drawings but most of the time I would see tic tac toe or them writing their name or a bunch of scribbles. This gives them a choice while still keeping them focused on a complete picture.

This is a new page of challenges for Fall/Halloween.

And this last picture is not a new thing but I laminated it and hung it in a different spot. I think it’s so pretty. I have four more color wheels to laminate and hang around it.

Will be this, after the first week of school. For fourth grade, each table will get a letter of ARTIST and will fill each letter with a collage of colors from magazines. Thanks, Mrs. Recker!
