Last year I finally got a big boy's chalk board!! They had ordered new white boards for about half the rooms(all they could afford)...and where just getting rid of the old chalk boards. I love my chalk boards because I can put stuff on them with magnets!!! I have a magnetic word wall, art posters, and I keep a stock of sheet magnets so I can make about anything magnetic!! Anyways, I asked them for one...and they were happy to hang it on my other wall. They took the bulletin board from that wall and placed it here...going vertical. I knew I wanted to make an area to look/talk/think/write about art!!! My old little chalk board is a great place to hang prints to go with my lessons. And on the right side I have liquid nailed metal sheets up to the wall & that is where my word wall/vocab hangs!!!
This board has prompts for discussing art. I also printed out a ton of words to help the student talk about art. They are mostly adjectives that have a bit more meet to them than pretty or ugly! ha ha I created the boarder from old art text books that were going to be discarded.My small chalk board is the perfect place to post the large Discover Art prints. I use the fatty clip magnets to secure them in place. I also printed out a sing that says Portrait Art that's up in the top left hand corner.
Please forgive the poor picture, but this is my word wall. I bought four sheets of metal at Home Depot and Liquid Nailed them to my wall. I wrote my words out on index card(the back cause I didn't like the lines showing), and placed sheet magnets on the back. I will grab the words from their and place them on my large chalk board with my teacher examples to reinforce the vocabulary with the art!
