Find the courage to stand out

Sorry I haven't posted in a while; I don't remember a school year starting out quite this crazy. Although, maybe they all do and I just mentally block them out each year to stay sane.

Needless to say one thing I haven't had time to do this year is update my bulletin boards, but a precious miracle occurred and the art teacher had a student helper that needed a few extra work hours and she volunteered to do my board. I think it's perfect!

More of my favorite classrooms!

Today's favorite classroom is actually our music room. Our music teacher used to be our technology teacher, so it seems fitting her theme is one trendy game; Angry Birds.

Here's a peak at her room:
This is her "cool down" spot. I love that she re-named it to the "Restart Station." You may recall this from our special area behavior plan from this year. This is the spot where students go to complete their behavior reflection charts.  One of my favorite aspects if that she has a sign with the 3 B's (Be Responsible, Be Respectful, Be Safe) here with a prompt on what to do so she doesn't have turn her attention away from the rest of the class.

Angry Bird lanterns.

Our 3 B's.

A simple explanation of our special area behavior plan.

How cool is this! I love the way she put up her chart. It makes hanging mine up near the board look very boring.
