So this whole post is probably rather ridiculous but it's really just something I'm trying to make a decision on.
Then yesterday, Sarah Hagan tweeted this:
This may be my absolute favorite bulletin board ever. Inspired by @msrubinteach who was inspired by @kellyoshea. pic.twitter.com/AYChLo1zTu— Sarah Hagan (@mathequalslove) August 13, 2014
And although I already printed and laminated my poster, I happen to have an empty bulletin board you can see here:
So instead of getting ready to go teach summer school this morning, I started to cut arrows and make my poster bigger.
Printed it on cardstock and ended up here:
And this is where the ridiculous sets in because any normal person would have probably called it a day there and been done. Nope. Decided I didn't like the rectangles so I cut.
And once all the pieces were on the floor I started playing. The layout is perfectly fine as is, but since I wasn't trying to fit it onto a piece of paper I started moving things around.
While a bulletin board is not going to be the center of attention or anything and it's probably not that big of a deal, I'm a perfectionist and I once I get an idea I have to run with it or it drives me nuts. Also, it would be handy to put up a large scale graphic idea of SBG in my room because it would save me a lot of explaining. Not to my kids because they get it, but to everyone else. People seemed to be very curious about what was going on in my room last year. Even my kids told me that other adults would ask them what exactly it was.
So I keep playing around with the cards on my living room floor and these are some of the options.
I have two favorites that I'm deciding between, but I'm curious to hear anyone else's thoughts.
