Dress up a beginning of the year bulletin board to help foster a positive, productive learning environment and get students working with Common Core skills right from the start! Students decorate the outside(48 key word choices) and complete Common Core vocabulary skills on the inside(2 choices). Have students work on presentation skills as each key word for success is presented. Fold in half and display, allowing the front to flip up to reveal and refer to the inside.
This bulletin board will not go out of style! Refer to it throughout the year to:
* Compliment class, team, or individuals
* Discuss assignments and tasks
* Discuss character traits/behaviors, current events, themes, etc. in fiction and nonfiction texts
* Attend to behavior concerns
The possibilities are endless!
