Great way to display class rules, reminders, etc. Use student photos with speech bubbles. Also use students to discuss class rules that they would enjoy having. This way they are responsible when they break the rules.
Kids love choosing their goal each day and I have noticed a huge difference in the way they are during the day. They really like reaching their goals, and it's helping teach them to manage themselves in a different way. LOVE THESE SO MUCH!
First bulletin board of the year - Guess the reader: pictures of staff holding their favorite book in front of their faces. kids have to guess who's behind the book! (could also do students behind their favorite book!
