I added another thing to my room today, and I LOVE HOW IT TURNED OUT!
First a story–because of course I couldn’t just show you a picture and be done with it. 🙂
I’ve seen this on Pinterest and blogs before (and in fact, Mrs. Hong has a really great version, too!), and liked it:
But, alas, I always have to put my own spin on things, so I got thinking. I’ve been in many meetings over the last few weeks that have been focusing on EQs and EUs and really focusing in on what I want for my students and what I hope they want for themselves. So I thought of this idea, and then thought I could switch it up a little. Here’s what I came up with:
I’m pretty excited about how it turned out, and excited about the message it sends to my new friends. 🙂
Hello Mrs. Bearden!
I have a friend, Ricky Leung, in Hong Kong who would like to follow your blog! He has a two-year-old son named Titus and is very interested to learn about our school and how it is similar and different from the schools in his country.
Your the best:)
YAY! That would be fabulous! Invite him to subscribe so he doesn’t miss anything. Glad you’re in 5th grade again–but sad that you’re not in my room. You’ll have a FABULOUS year, though–promise. 🙂 Thanks for continuing to read, friend, and hope to catch up in person soon. Please tell Marin I say hello! 🙂
That is verry clever Mrs. B!!! I think it is creative and looks FABULOUS!!!!!
Why thank you, Sophia! By the way, thanks a million for all the work you and Anna did the other day! You should come back and it now that I’ve got all the books in place and labeled. 🙂
Would you be okay if I took your idea and changed it around to fitt movie th onto my 5th grade door? I usually make a summer Mr. Wittmer’s Summer Reading door but end up only reading seven books.
Yeah–I don’t guess 7 books would fill up much space. Well unless you made them REALLY big…LOL. Absolutely! Steal away. My idea was a twist on someone else’s anyway. You should send a link when you’re done—I’d love to see it. I’ll link to it from here, too, if you let me. 🙂
Love this! Thanks for sharing!
Sure! Thanks for reading. 🙂
This truly is a great way to get these statements embedded in your students’ thinking. I like this idea a lot . . . no matter whether it is on the outside of the door or on the inside! 🙂
HA! Well I think you have me convinced that I need to move it. Thanks for that suggestion! 🙂
I think it looks great where it is now! Glad you took my suggestion well. See you soon!
Thanks for giving it. 🙂 I have intentions to write abt it again soon. You stretched my thinking (without probably meaning to) and THANK YOU, friend!
You make me smile. 🙂
