We all know how important (and beneficial) it is to display student work. Last year, I had frames hanging outside of my classroom under the title, "Frameworthy Work". When students would do well on an assignment or test, I would let them hang their work in our frames outside. The frames were a little too tall, so I ended up having to help them... but you get the idea! Several times when I would hang our recent projects in the hallway, I would give myself a headache because the students would swarm around the projects and chatter. I don't do "chatting" in the hallway. BUT! It was best for the kids. :)
This year, I decided to hang frames again for student work (in a future post!) Then, Emily suggested I use one of my bulletin boards for student work! Ta-daaaaaaaaaaa! My next project was born.
But first, here are some great ideas to display student work that I have found on the internet.
Clipboards for each kiddo. Check it out here.
Bravo board! You will swoon after everything The First Grade Parade posts on her blog.
Clothespins with mini chalkboards available on Etsy. You could totally make these! Just like...
With clothespins in mind, I kept searching. I had clothespins and lucky for me I found this!
Factory Direct Craft gives a pretty great tutorial on how to make your clothespins fancy-fied.
Using Mod Podge, scrapbook paper, crusty clothespins from last school year, and buttons I created my bulletin board.
Use your imagination! I have yet to make it into my classroom, so this is a preview of what will soon be hanging in my classroom.
It's 10:00! You know what that means.. HIMYM is on Lifetime.
Wait, why is Dance Moms on? I don't approve.
