When I was student teaching, one of my favorite parts of the 4th grade classroom I was in was the student name posters that adorned the classroom walls. I loved that the students helped create the decor for the classroom and they added a lot of color and personalization to the space! Every year since then I write out my students’ names on narrow posters for them to color the first day of school. We then hang them up and keep them on our classroom walls all year!
The black papers I cut in half lengthwise (I use these pieces to back the white pieces before I put them up on the wall).
