Whale watching

I also had a room without a view and we made one wall an ocean view. The bottom half was the water and from that emerged whales tales. My students were older and helped. However it is easy enough to do with a helper. The largest whale tail sported hand prints from each child going up the 2 sides of the tail because the whale's tale is like a human finger print; no two are alike. Throughout the season, students drew, colored and cut out new ocean and beach critters they learned about I had a chance and added them to the wall. It grew and changed withtweather, too. If I miss those days, but I am happy in my first grade job. I am discovering ways students can take ownership of the room decor.
