This bulletin board greets children on the first day.
|Don't you just love bulletin boards|
that are 3D and not just flat?
|After I take the trees down from the bulletin board, |
I glue them into their Memory Books (12" X 12")
along with their First Day photo and their
sandwich from our Picnic Pals board. See below.
Is anyone else using Chicka-Chicka-Boom-Boom in a different way?
You might also like our Letter-Name Book. Print it, bind it, and then use it on the first day to find out who has an "A" or an "a" in their name. Each day, for 26 school days, you look for the next letter. Each day, you compare how many of each letter your class has in their names. This is a great opportunity to to extend the Chicka-Chicka-Boom-Boom story and use Common Core math vocabulary like more, less, and equal.
It's also part of our Beginning of the School Year Bundle.
Here is my Picnic Pal bulletin board.
We will take dictation from the kids about which sandwich they like best.
They will copy onto a bread template and we will staple it to the plate.
You can see the bread template on the memory book page above.
Have FUN keeping the FUN in the FUNdamentals
and I"ll see you all here tomorrow with more classroom set-up ideas.
