As you all know I have been in the throes of my yearly pre-school breakdown. Our homeschool starts on Tuesday and despite the annual nervous fit I have, I generally at least have the bulletin board done by now. Not so this year. This year I decided to be Mommy, teacher, therapist, nurse, AND writer. Why? I do not know. Apparently, because I’m just not that bright.
Anyway…I went where I always go for inspiration – Teachers Pay Teachers. I found a super cute Pokemon bulletin board set for a buck! Hardcore Teacher Resources offers it. Go here to buy it for yourself. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Gotta-Learn-Em-All-Bulletin-Board-Set-2702394
Me being me I had to add to it. I printed a name of a Pokemon on the back of each pokeball. As DJ learns a word, task, or math fact I will remove the ball and give him a laminated picture of the Pokemon listed on it. This is akin to him “catching” them. This would be a great contest for spelling or math classrooms or even for homeschool students to compete against each other.
The picture below demonstrates my work for the day. I am pleased.
