For the topic 'beginning' I chose the beginning of my school year. Below are some photos of some things that are ready in the room. The bulletin board below has the syllabus for each of my sets of classes I also have envelopes for late work. I still have to put my "I can" statements up per each unit I'm teaching. The "I cans' are for the students. The hanging envelopes are for work to be passed out.
I had the freshmen do bio-poems on themselves. This bulletin board is featuring some of them.
This is the bulletin board where I put up all the team pictures and news articles highlighting students from our high school. The kids really enjoy this one especially if pics of them are up there - means they were in the paper.
This is one of my favorite comics where everyone is shouting for her and she yells something only to have them take that and say it all together.
Here is the display window in our high school lobby. Girls from Student Council put it up. It was actually created by other girls two years ago, and I kept everything.
