hall displays

Ok by far, my weakness is bulletin boards and displays. I don't enjoy putting them up or taking them down and I especially don't like figuring out what I what to put up. I did have welcome back to school stuff up until the other third grade teachers decided we should all put up some christmas art projects and some christmas themed math projects.

So now I'm faced with dealing with what to do in January because I can't leave that Christmas stuff up even for a day. I need to have the kids do some work right away that I can put out in the hallway. However, the things I'm doing don't really lend themselves to hallway displays.

In science we're studying magnets. In math we're doing measurement. In reading we're doing literature groups. In writing we're doing diamantes and cinquains, which I could imagine putting in the hallway but that will take a while to have a finished piece.

Does anyone have any ideas about some sort of attractive work that we could do involving magnets or measurement??

TIA

cinquains

My third graders are writing cinquains next week about snowflakes. We are writing them on lined paper that is outlined in a snowflake shape. When written, we will cut them out, glue on blue paper and outline with silver glitter. They look quite nice on a bulletin board when complete and can stay up all winter!

We did cinquains also. They typed them in Word, and added clipart. I put them up with the saying I got somewhere "our winter poems will warm your heart." We also have a display with chart, graphs,excel, from our measurement unit. Lastly I will be putting up their response to a winter story. (art and story). Oh, another good one I have in the room. They saying is something like...We are unique just like snowflakes. They listed 6 ways they are special, and wrote one on each "spike" of the snowflake. They are decorated with glitter glue.

You could put up penguins or another wintery animal and then add your poems as you comlplete them.

Read "Snowflake Bently" and have the kids cut out snowflakes. Put them on your board with snow poems. I also printed a paragraph about Snowflake Bently and some of his photographs to display as well.

Thank you all for the ideas. I was highly stressed about this, and I am a very low-stress person in general. Knowing that I am going to have to take all of that Christmas stuff down immediately and will have basically blank walls was causing a lot of anxiety.

I'm going to combine several of these suggestions. I do have some snowman/penguin/winterish pre-made bb stuff I can stick up immediately, and we can do the Snowflake Bentley snowflakes quickly without too much trouble. That will give me a background while we are working on our winter poetry!!

Whew, I'm feeling much better now. Thanks again!

Measurement Snowmen

Have them make snowmen following a sheet with measurements. For example, "my snowman's head has a diameter of 3 inches, my snowman's eyes are 2 inches, his carrot nose is 4 inches." Then let them be creative about how they make it and put it together. Or you could let them freely do the snowmen then measure the body parts themselves and fill in the blanks.
