Going to make a green and red one for Christmas, "Merry Christmas, 2012" then take kids pictures by the tree for gifts for parents. First Grade School Box: Happy First Day of School! Use velcro for 1st so you can change it to 100th or last too!
This is a GREAT idea. It hangs in the teacher work room and throughout the month people write comments/brags about their co-workers...then an admin takes a picture and it gets posted on her admin blog...I think we could do this! Sooo bringing it up at the next LT meeting!
Use on the First Day of Middle School to open dialog with students about their expectations of the teacher. Good Ice breaker too. This could be tweaked and done with mini units as well especially as students start new math objectives.
