I took all of my strategy charts off of the walls last week. I realized that they were more like posters than instructional aids if I kept them up since they weren’t created alongside my students. I cannot believe how barren my classroom’s walls are, but I know that creating charts with my kids, rather than for them, is what makes them meaningful.

That being said, Teaching Heart has some great Back-to-School Bulletin Board Ideas in case you can’t stand the barren walls in your classroom.
