I am doing something new this year, which is making a bulletin board for our monthly themes. (Now don’t hate. I have only one child to educate now, so I need to keep myself busy somehow.LOL!)
It’s a small board, nothing elaborate, just enough to serve my purpose, which is to display our monthly artist, literary element, and grammar topic.
Today marks a new month, so it was time to change out the board (which reminded me I hadn’t yet shared on my blog).
This month’s artist is Marc Chagall (last month was Louise Nevelson):
Our literary element is “characterization” (last month was “setting”). The photo is my little play-on-words. We call him our “literary elephant”.
And our grammar focus is verbs this month (last month was nouns):
I actually have the monthly literary elements and grammar topics planned out for the entire year. The artists have been chosen, too, I just have not yet ordered them by month. Going to play that one by ear.
It’s not my usual style, but I am finding it a simple way to keep myself accountable. Seeing as it is right there in front of my face, it’s a little harder to just forget about it. Plus it gives me a chance to use my laminator and express my “inner public-school teacher” LOL!
How about you? Doing anything new to keep yourself on track this year?
