Last year I decided this look had to go.
So, I tried this look. I had my daughter cut up poster board to fit. While it looks cleaner, it also looks boring.
I added some construction paper, and I like it better. The look is still clean and not too busy to distract my students, but this adds some much needed color. I could label these if I wanted to, and I think they'd still look clean.
We'll see what the kids say Monday morning.
