    I don't think so. I think an elementary classroom should have alot of visuals, as long as its not overpowering and confusing to the students. Your BBs aren't everyday interactive and ones you will use, more for decor (it seems) with just a couple that are interactive.

    After seeing yours, I think I better get more! It's really hard to guess how many I need when I haven't seen the classroom yet. All I've been told is that there are bookcases and desks...

    Oh, that's tough. I have diagrams drawn out. I'm only getting a week in the room, and I have TONS to do, so I'm trying to prepare as much as possible. I bought those really, really large ziplock bags, and I'm going to write one board name on the outside of each one. Then I'll have the fabric, border and pieces inside the bags, ready to put up. I hope my fabric fits, as I didn't have time to measure the boards.

    Oops I almost forgot our word wall, which is on the white board.
    Helpers are on a pocket chart on the calendar wall and birthdays will just be on a poster on the side of a cabinet.
