Walk with me (Part I)

Welcome to room 160! Now that school is less than one week away, I’ve been working hard to get the room up to tip top, art teacher, paint slanging FABULOUS-ness!

I think it’s pretty darn close. Take a look!

Before entering the room, there is a short hallway with two bulletin boards on either side. On one side I did this…

Stan Lee Facebook Page

All of dear ol Stan’s friends are these artists and designers to give the kids variety of creative careers.

bottom left to right: Alexander McQueen, Michelangelo, Christian Louboutin

All of them just also happen to be how the classroom tables are labeled and also have mobiles hanging overhead that the children will be sitting under all year long.

The best thing about the Facebook bulletin board is that it will stay up all year long, and the portrait of the artist, artist’s work, and poster board of information is the only thing that will get swapped out!

On the other side, I’ve done this…

First week exit ticket. Kids put up Post-It notes of their opinions of art.

**Update**

The bulletin board is a success!

What is art? With post-it note answers by the kids.
