I have a confession...
I hate word walls...lol.
Well, not really, I just don't ever use ours. First off, I have no WALL to put them on, so I'd have to use my chalk/white boards. Ummm...kinda need that space for other things. So I've started using my cabinet doors - it's "eye-ish" level (when they're sitting on the floor - ha!) for the kids to still be able to read, so I thought it would work....
Yeah....this is what it looks like - don't laugh - PLEASE! lol
I started the year off doing pretty well...but then I had an intern, went on maternity leave, and well, I just never thought about it again.
I've never been really good at using a word wall though. I admit it - it's one of my short comings.
So, I NEED your help!!!
WHAT can I do to make sure I use it next year? How can I make it more user-kid-friendly? What kind of activities do you do?? What words do you put up there?? Do you have a blogpost so I could see yours??!
(Should I just make this a linky???)
Ok, now I must leave you with a smile - or two! :)
Today, it was nerd day at our school - since we are FINISHED with the FCAT testing!!
This is the lady behind it all - she's one of my buddies - a 4th grade teacher.
This super-nerd was JUST fabulous!!
(please don't judge our mess - we're seriously purging our stuff in our pod - and it's gotta get worse before it can get better, right?!)
And here is one of my kiddos - LOVE HIM!!!
And it's not a nerd, but B wanted to make you smile too! How could I NOT show you this picture?! :)
Hope y'all had a tremendous Thursday!
