Words on the Wall {INSPIRED}


  • As things are changing in classrooms everywhere and we are quickly becoming so data-driven, I find I need to keep reminding myself of why I became a teacher and what I know in my heart is what kids need to succeed. Large, strong words will be constant reminders.
  • They send a message without getting lost in the shuffle. As the walls get busy, these will stand out.
  • It sends a positive message to visitors entering the classroom in an easy, simple way.
  • I want my students to internalize these words.

I’ve been working hard to complete my classroom makeover for the 2012-2013 school year so that I may provide you with a summer full of tips and ideas for setting up your own classrooms. To kick off my second annual summer-long, daily series on setting up, organizing, and managing your classroom I am running a miniseries titled, “INSPIRED” and will feature a photo that brought inspiration to my very own classroom makeover. 
Be sure to check out my Clutter-Free Guide to Organizing and Managing Your Classroom as well as my Classroom Themes Page for tons of tips and ideas.
