Well, it's back to school time here in Nashville. I went back on July 29th, and kids came back for a half day on August 1st. Tomorrow, the 5th is the kids first full day, and my first day for classes. I decided to keep my eclectic monster/alien theme for my classroom this year, and just tweaked a few things. I expanded my word wall (it used to be on the back of the door) and also created a whole board focused on the rubric that I use to grade the student's artwork. I do reference the rubric when I explain the projects that I expect the students to create. Above the marker board, I have the visual standards posted, and plan on hanging the objectives for the various lessons on this board as well.
