Countdown to Day One!

It is unbelievable how quickly the summers seem to come and go.  The first day of school is all but here and the class preparation has begun.

Having a life skill classroom is such a rewarding experience and so much fun!  Teaching students valuable skills needed for living more independently is something I enjoy doing and providing interactive bulletin boards is just a small part of the classroom theme.

This year we are "Cooking Up a Great Year" and showing students the "Recipes for Success"

I had fun expressing these quotes by way of interactive bulletin boards.  These pictures show how I made use of presentation boards. I cut and painted them to make cabinets, refrigerator, oven, and a microwave that open and close with use of magnets.  I also used clip art images and online images to make things to go in them like pots and pans, pie plates, foods, etc...

This type of bulletin board allows students to interact with it by taking the items out and placing them back in the matching place that each item belongs.  To do this, the student looks on the back of each item where the word it written of what the object is.  The student matches the words and places the items where they belong.  Here are the pictures of the finished boards:
