    How do you set up your boards and how often do you change them? Are your boards more informational such as letters/numbers of week, anchor charts, etc. or student's work? I'm in a combo K/1st grade class with one large BB. Any suggestions?

    In the past, I only had two boards, and they didn't change at all during the year. One was over the library - posters and sayings having to do with reading. The other was my math rotation schedule.

    This year I have a TON of boards! I plan to use at least some for student work and some of them will be left open for anchor charts. I hope to still have some that are just for fun!

    Does anyone use the Smeken reading icons on a BB in 1st grade? I like the idea but wondering about in 1st.
    Where do you hang anchor charts and how long do you leave them up?

    I have one board for student work, one for calendar/information, one for science (I teach the chem rotation so it will be a periodic table and vocab), and a word wall. I'll also have a timeline going around the top of my room. We'll create anchor charts-I need to find places for them!

    I use all of my classroom boards for resources. I have a board in the hall that I change often and use to display student work. I also created space in the classroom (though not a BB) for pictures and student work.

    Last year in 3rd I had one to display student work that I changed maybe once a month. I had one as a "focus wall" (part of our storytown curriculum for reading) that I changed once a week. I had one with info/calendar that I changed as needed and a small math vocab one that I changed for each new unit. I kept the same paper and borders up all year- I HATE papering bulletin boards!

    Last time in sped I had a nice big room with lots of space...I had a "high quality work" board that I just added student work to throughout the year and one that displayed some type of recent/seasonal project that I changed about once a month. All of my others were permanent. I had one with touch math visuals, one with phonics, and one with student goal charts on it. I'm not sure what my room situation is this year...honestly if I have a closet all to myself I'll be happy! I know the room I had before was so untypical of sped. I'm just hoping I don't have to share with other providers.
