Hello friends! I'm so excited to link up again with Tara for Monday Made It!
Although, I'm a little tardy to the party. :) My dad's retirement party was this weekend and we had a lot of family in town visiting. My dad's party was wonderful, and was such a tribute to his thirty-six years in the fire service. If you can't tell, I'm just a little proud. :)
For my Monday made it, I created my learning objectives board for the front of my room. :) Here was my inspiration.
I tried and tried to find the original source for my inspiration, but it appears as it was probably uploaded by a user rather than pinned from a blog or website.
I loved the idea of using frames, but decided not to because next year we are transitioning to the common core, and I don't know what our expectations will be for posting objectives. If we have to post the actual objective than I'll just purchase this from Courtney and display them in a pocket chart, and then I'll have six random frames laying around. For now, we aren't required to post objectives, but the rest of my new fourth grade team posts I Can Statements for the week, and I loved that idea. I'm all about making our learning visible, public, and permanent (love Debbie Miller) and thought posting I Can Statements would be a great addition to our classroom.
Instead of using frames, I used these dry erase sleeves that I picked up at Target.
I purchased enough for each subject I teach, and also purchased some polka dot cardstock and brads at Michaels.
I'm planning on stringing the sleeves together like so with some ribbon for a pop of color.
I will hang the two rows of objectives with clothespin magnets from the board in the front of my room, next to my Smartboard. Or I might hang each one up individually with a loop and a clothespin magnet. That will be decided once I am able to get back in my room and see what stays put the best. :)
I'm sorry that the photo quality isn't the best, I played with the white balances on my camera awhile ago, and the pictures it takes haven't been the same since. Even after I reset it to factory settings. :(
Oh, the closing date was scheduled for my house. It's on a what was already a big day for me.
Wait for it.
Wait for it.
The FIRST DAY of school! At first I was like "are you kidding me?" when the title company called me to schedule the appointment. Luckily, it's scheduled after school, but when you teach until 4:00, the time isn't that far after school either. The movers are scheduled to come the very next day. So as soon as I hit publish, I'm off to purge in my home office some more. :)
