It’s about that time of year. One of my favorite things has always been getting my classroom ready!
If you teach science, I have some amazing resources for you to make what you put on your walls purposeful and attractive.
Let’s get started!
#1 “You May” Board
This resource (shown in the photo above) was so useful to me last year with my 5th graders. When students finished their work, they could choose from the activities on the board. I put velcro on the cards so I could change out what I wanted them to choose from, too!
#2 Lab Team Roles
Oh my gosh, I thought the “You May” Board was really useful, but I could not LIVE without Lab Team Roles. This kept every group assignment meaningful, my classroom clean, and students WORKING. I hung the posters on the wall, then made the small ones into necklaces for team members to wear while working.
#3 Big Money Words
These 28 word cards were used all year in my classroom. Students started out slowly, but by the end of the year were using the terminology regularly and comfortably. You can’t beat that. These come in two color themes to match your room style.
