I have a strange question to ask,
but how would you actually use this resource pack in the class? i was thinking it looks amazing but we have a heap of KLA’s and a heap of different areas you target each day. according to the our state there are so many hours a week you must teach each KLA (english has multiply areas to cover, handwriting, spelling, english, punctuation, sentence structure etc as well as different grade levels?
Just curious as to how i can implement this successfully within my classroom of year 3/4 students.
Thanks Laura 🙂

Hi Laura,

I would suggest picking a major term goal for the students. So perhaps one term you are focusing on narrative writing. So that may be what you use the bump it up wall. Another way could be if you find your class need a lot of development in their comprehension, or perhaps it’s handwriting. You could then develop a bump it up wall for one topic you feel your class may need significant development.

I hope this helps.
Kind regards,
Holly

I have two balloons for each child on the same wall- one for their own reading goal ie going up levels over the semester and one for a personal goal they choose in writing ie working toward writing an independent information Report or just using correct punctuation.

Hello,

I have decided to use the turtle picture for my display. Are you able to make another succuss criteria page that displays the turtle instead of the snail?

Kind regards,
Rachelle

I saw this on a teacher’s wall and it looks lovely and very inviting – and a great motivator. Lovely.
