Open House

Is it weird to be proud of the fact that I nearly covered floor to ceiling with student work for Open House (Okay, I always have a lot up anyway because I like them to be proud of their work, but this is more than there was Monday)? I put a lot more time into it this year, and almost every student had three-four pieces of work up to see. Isaac hung up those cranes that ELD made to go with the Japanese fable they read and summarized. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out. :)

Yeah, I'm an English teacher nerd.

This looks great! I miss decorating my classroom. And I agree it helps students feel ownership and a sense of accomplishment for the majority of the decorations to be things they've created. Did you read Sadako and The Thousand Paper Cranes? I love that book and the tradition. It's very inspiring.
