Hallway Display Idea




This was an idea I got from another teacher and I thought was a great way to display what was going on in the classroom each month.

I love hallway ideas! I have posted some on my blog, but love seeing what other teachers are doing. Thanks!

I love it! Are those 12 x 18 sheets of construction paper? Do you laminate them?

At the beginning of the year did you have them up already with just the month tags?

These would look great in our pod area - thanks for sharing!

Mendy - Those are 12x18 sheet but they are not laminated, some of the pictures hang off the sheets and I plan to give pictures to students at the end of the year. I put them up as the month is finished. I was afraid if I put them all up for the year that it might be an incentive to "doodle" on them as they stand in line.

These look great! I'm really loving your blog. I'm moving from first grade to 4th grade science next year, and will be teaching the entire grade level!!! I'm curious about the "are you a weather whiz?" papers hanging below the monthly posters. can you explain those?

Eve Heaton said...

The weather whiz posters were something I did at a training about weather. It was a posterboard that I cut into three strips. I cut windows in them that the students could lift up. On the outside of the window I put a picture or drew a picture of a cloud type (or used cotton balls) and underneath was the answer when students lifted it up. I put them in the hall so they could test themselves when standing in line. It said, "Are you a weather whiz? Take this cloud quiz!"

At the end of the year (when it's so hard to motivate the kids to do anything at all), the teacher could give the pictures out (single pictures) to kids who completed work/did their best--sort of like a raffle for all the kids whose name was in the hat for XXXX. Even if a kid didn't get a picture he/she was in, it is still a great memory and includes friends from class.

Such good material on here. I cannot wait to start teaching this fall!

I'm thinking about trying this out. It looks like you just pick one thing that you studied that month and include pictures pertaining to that one concept. (rather than write several things covered in the curriculum that month, you are just honing in on one.) Do I have that right?

Are you willing to share the monthly tag that you made for the top of each one?

Eve Heaton said...

I would share them...if I saved them! Sorry. I sort of made them and then deleted them. I'll try to recreate and put up on the site.

Great idea! I am always looking for something new to present in my classroom. Thanks in advance!
