Here is my whiteboard. It is a little chaotic, but I think it gets the message across. You can sort of see it, but in the left right-hand corner of the picture there is a t-chart that reads "Teacher/Student". It is a game I play with the students. If they behave or use a vocabulary word correctly in a sentence, they get a point. If they are not behaving or laying their heads on their desks (I hate that!), I get a point. If they win at the end of the month, they get a party. If I win, they don't. The kids like playing, and it makes things more fun.
This is our cause and effect chart. We just got finished learning it.
I got tired of the kids always telling me they are done, so I made this poster to remind them of all the things they COULD do if they have finished something.
I told you, it is teeny tiny. That's about all there is in my classroom.
There I am! Working hard?
Who knows what's going to happen next year, but for now, I am happy to be working right where I am!
