I posted a few more pictures of my classroom, the finished product.
I have lab journal table of contents posted here, as well as my "while you were out" folders. Kids who are absent can pick up their makeup work from the folder day that they were out. It works out pretty well. :0)
I marked off this board for our daily objectives, class agendas and homework. We have to post TEK objectives and ESL objectives every day. It's super fun. ;0) This helps me stay organized too though, and is a good thing for the kids to look at as well.
This is my content bulletin board. I change this out every nine weeks with the different areas of study we will be covering. We start the year off with nature of science (measurement, scientific method, variables), then chemistry (atomic structure, periodic table of elements, chemical and physical properties and reactions) and then ecology (food chains/webs, relationships, abiotic and biotic factors). I know you were all totally interested in that. haha :0)
Well thanks for reading, I wish I could be more specific about things, but I like my job and want to keep it as of now, so I'll leave it at that. :0)
