for Beginning the School Year
Bookmarks for Incoming
Last year I had my sixth grade
class make bookmarks of their favorite book
We then wrote letters of advice to the new incoming 6th graders of what they should and should not do to make it a good year. The kids decorated those advice letters and attached a small picture of themselves. That was another bulletin board.
These ideas kept them reading and writing and proofing while they still had a good time interacting and reminiscing. It was fun listening to the big future 7th graders talk about what these 6trh grade newbies need to look out for in order to survive my class and the 6th grade year as a whole.
A big plus was I had two small
bulletin boards already decorated for fall. I just stapled newspaper
over the top to keep them from dust and fading.
