Anyway, I am just now getting around to answering some questions people asked me on different posts. One question was about what was hanging in my room. Here is the picture:
The question was about the black things you see hanging. Here is a better picture:
For Open House, our theme is "A Day in the Life of a First Grader". We have our students make cameras to show "Snapshots of First Grade". We usually also have a bulletin board that displays some pictures, but I decided to do it differently this year. I hung the cameras from the ceiling and attached 3-4 pictures of each child on the camera. They loved seeing pictures of things they did earlier in the year. The parents liked it too, especially when I sent the pictures home! In the center of the camera, the kids draw a picture of themselves as the lens. Then, they add the flash and some buttons, and voila... we have a camera to hang.
Do you hang things from your ceiling? I'd love to know how you use this space for instructional use!
Or... do you take lots of photos like me? What do you do with them in the classroom?
I would L.O.V.E. to hear your comments!
