Our district requires all elementary teachers to have a word wall posted in the classroom that is easily visible. This year I created new letter headings using the Cricut. My theme is a Superhero theme, but I wanted longevity for my headings that would allow me to use them for several more years. So, this is what I came up with so far. For the last 4 years I've bought the exact same pad of scrapbook paper and used it for various ideas. I'm loving my new letter headings.
In addition to new word wall headings, I redid my group signs. This was done on the Cricut as well. My thoughts were to make these look somewhat like a bat signal. I'll hang these over each group. This helps me stay organized with materials each day. I sort papers by groups and have stacks ready at the beginning of the day. It also helps me send groups to bathrooms, library, etc.
Not a whole lot accomplished, but I'm getting there. I start summer school next week and will work right up until the start of school. Here's to hoping that I am more motivated.
