Observation Window

Creating an observation window is a simple way to start transforming your classroom into a place for wonder. I simply took bulletin board border and taped it around one section of my window. I put a notebook and set of colored pencils by the window and encourage the kids to sketch and write about what they see outside. This area is especially popular when a big weather even occurs! It has been a great way to track the weather events or happenings that have occurred across the school year. This is also a great place for writers to go when they are in need of a writing idea. There is so much inspiration right outside the classroom window.
