Newest version of the kids’ gallery (2015). See below for older one. The kids choose what goes up. The frames are made from cutting up manila folders in this year’s colours. Two big paper clips at the top of each frame make it easy to slide work in and out so we don’t have to climb up and do the pinning thing.
Last year (2013) the grade 1 class used these trellis things in their room and they looked really effective. They were plastic and sometimes slumped a bit which was a bit of a nuisance but they were really good for giving the kids less distraction by screening them a bit, but everyone was still visible. They were also good for display as well.
Kardinia Creations and Barwon Gallery
At both ends of the room, we've looooonnng display boards, so we've put up a frame for each child and a name label. Can't wait to see what each child puts up to show off. (Some early results below) Sometimes we'll assign projects as well - eg. design a book advertisement.
