I got pretty excited this week and worked on a printable version of my Back to School display! Every year (I know, it's a bit predictable, but I love it.) I do this display: What's Buzzing in the Fourth Grade?
I have the kids color and decorate a little bee carrying a banner. They write their name on it and I laminate them. I put them up on the Busy Bee wall.
These are my Busy Bees.
Once a week, a student is named the "Busy Bee of the Week" and I they get to sit in the Busy Bee corner for independent reading. It's a cozy little area in the nonfiction section of my library. I put a little toychest in there (from my own childhood!) with a pillow on it so they can curl up and be special.
This is the Busy Bee corner!
This is my new pack at TPT and Teacher's Notebook. Muy affordable and a fun way to start the beginning of the year!
