Thank you so much for this blog. (found it this past school year while seaching art classroom organization - I'm in awe of your yarn shelf!!) I'm beginning my 5th year as an art teacher. For you to be doing such great stuff with your kids AND have the time to post... I'm amazed, inspired and THANKFUL! I made some new posters and procedure signs today and had a fresh, new and fun approach thanks to your bulletin board examples. I'll have to photograph them and share (think small art images thanking kids for wiping the sink counter dry after washing their hands). Keep up the great work!!! - Karen
Karen, Thank you soooooo much for the encouragement!!!! I really appreciate it. I think we're all better when we work together & share ideas!!
Hello again! I started a blog in order to "pay it forward"... now you can see some of the new signs I've made. So far, I've only posted the signs I made on the computer. I'll post the handmade ones soon.http://mrshansensartroom.blogspot.comKaren
On your class behavior chart, do you reward them for a certain amount of one color? If the class obtains a certain amount of blue do they get a free draw or special project day?I tried a class behavior chart last year and it was a hit, but not as organized as yours. I really like your set up but I was wondering how you enforced and rewarded with it. P.S. I LOVED your art no no board and I also did that last year, and have them hanging this year too. You have great class procedure ideas and I'm looking forward to more!Thanks, Ashley
I just found your blog and I have really enjoyed your pictures of your management style. I do similar things but I will definately be using what you have come up with! Keep up the great work!!
