Parent teacher conferences were last week, and I don't know about you, but I didn't have lots. I did, however, have LOTS of time to work in my room. One of my goals for this year was to improve the signage for our spring art show. I've blogged about the art show many many many times. Something I probably haven't described accurately is the shear SIZE of a building that can comfortably house 1100+ students. We have six of each grade level, K-6, plus special education rooms, two gyms, two libraries. . .it's the size of a high school. And my room is located near the third-sixth grade classes, so very far away from k-second. So I spent some of my not-conferencing-hours on signs:
I've got some ideas for how to get said signs noticed once the big night comes, but [thankfully] it's still nearly five months away!
With Leader In Me, I'm also toying with the idea of some sort of student guides to let primary parents know that there's fun going on in "the south." I'll be sure and let you know how it goes (five-ish months from now, I'm sure you'll be waiting with baited breath).
Until then, eyes on the prize, people! Fun & fantastic student art making! Let's get to it!
