"Bare" looking wall?!?

Do you ever worry that a wall looks "bare" from about eye level up? I have a HUGE wall in my room (cinder block of course) that hides the air unit for 3 classrooms. I have things on it, but feel the top looks bare. I do NOT want to just add stuff for the sake of it.... so

Look at my link (I can't attach yet, if you have time) to the pic that has caption (guided reading area)

(this link should take you straight there, to the right pic)

Does it look bare with nothing up top? haha... thanks, I may be being, "Silly"

Bare Wall

It is ok for your walls to be bare at the beginning of the year, because as school progresses you can fill it with anchor charts. My P does not like us having pre-made posters up. She likes it posted when we have covered the material and have live anchor charts!!!

It does look too bare to me, but I think because there's so much white cinder block. Maybe you could paint one of the walls a different color? That way you wouldn't be filling it up with unnecessary stuff. Just a thought. Otherwise, if you will be making anchor charts with your students, you could add them as you go along.

tree

I added a tree this year which will continue to grow progressively throughout the school year. It's an "ever-growing word wall." I'm not sure if you would want to use a similar idea or not, but it can be as big as you want it to be and you're sure to make good use of it if students refer to the words.

What about hanging a clothes line around the perimeter of the room and hanging student artwork up there? That way it wouldn't always be bare. I usually put up "Under Construction" signs at the beginning of the year so I remember to leave that space blank.

Outline Area for Anchor Charts

If you decide to put anchor charts up there, you could use bulletin board borders and create outlines of where the charts will go.
