Posters, Schedules and Charts

Laminated posters created as helps to be placed around the classroom. These may be classroom rules, helps for punctuation, math terms, spelling rules, birthdays or the weekly class schedule.

Find out what your classes weekly schedule is and create a chart or laminated poster to display this to assist the children to remember the schedule. You (the teacher) and any subs to know what subjects the class will be learning on any certain day. This could include Library, Art, P.E., Music Computers and more.

Hot and cold Lunch:

Have children's names written on individual shapes and cut out, laminate and place magnet on the back. Get a magnet board or a metal surface near the door. Divide a small area to hold the magnets after school. Have another section that is divided in two that says Hot on one side and Cold on the other. When the children arrive in the morning they are to move their magnet to the hot or cold side for the type of lunch they will be having. You may need to remind them at first until they get the hang of it. This also helps with attendance. When the children arrive from their lunch recess, they can move their magnet to the border area again ready for the next day.

Class Helper Charts:

These can be simple or extravagant. There are many good books out there with ideas you can use. Example: Octopus with arms going out to pockets with assignment written on the outside. Card with the child's name on is placed in each pocket so the name shows.
Child's name on a star(or other shape) to be hung under the assignment so that names show.

It is good to have a chart with the month day and the child's name for each birth date, even if not celebrated. Can mark a special day for the child instead.
