So, our school had a huge mold problem this year and many classrooms had a wall that was replaced (including mine). We weren't able to set up our rooms until last weekend and school starts tomorrow! Crunch time!
One positive thing (beside being mold-free) occurred - one of my walls received a new paint color! I'm loving the brightness (and the fact that I didn't have to use so much butcher paper to cover the walls).
Here are a few pictures from Owl Land (I know, there is not a 12 step process for an owl addiction):
|Entrance to Room|
|Fat Little Owls ;)|
|Front of Room|
|Word Wall (BLUE WALL) and Large Magnetic Staff Board (I love it)|
|Music/Melody Street (with vocab for high, low, pitch, melody, phrase, step, skip, and leap)|
|Close-Up of Music Street - (Fa and Ti will come soon for older students)|
|Music Tech Center|
|Sign-Out Spot (2-5 only)|
|7 Habits Posters (clip on "Habit of the Day/Week")|
|Data Tracking Wall (more about that soon)|
|7 Habits-based mission statement|
|7-Habits Themed Bulletin Board (each quarter note has a habit with language about how it looks in the music room)|
|The kids always ask, "Why are those owls so angry?"|
|New Leadership Recognition board - one leader per grade per week chosen by me (they get their picture out here, name on the announcements, and a special "owl" seat during class)|
I can't wait to see your gorgeous rooms as you get back into your rooms this month! Wishing you all a successful year and another year of sharing and learning between us!
