Better late than never?
As I've mentioned before ... we started McGraw Hill's WONDERS reading program this year.
We've been encouraged to create a Focus Wall showing all of the various standards we will cover each week. I've been dreaming of my board...
and I think it was born today ... finally!!
After hours on the computer... and printing at UPS...
(notice my final color copy pick up bag in the background)
I bought a 20 x 30 frame cork board at Target ($14)...
then positioned the pieces where I wanted them on the board.
I cut the black poster board about 1/2" bigger than the card to create a 'frame'.
I just stapled the poster board cards on the cork board.
(no one will ever see them but me ;)
Then I added the headers for each card.
Everything needs a bit of ribbon ... right?
Then I finally hung the standard cards in their spot.
They are just attached with Velcro so that I can easily switch the cards each week.
Looks nice in my kitchen on a chair, huh? ;)
Can't wait to take it to school Monday and hang it where it goes.
Is it normal for teachers to dream of focus walls???
