ABC Children Index Card Bulletin Board Activity

Each fall, when I go back to my classroom, I’m always faced with blank bulletin boards! Because I like to decorate my room with student work, I often use this ABC Children Index Card Bulletin Board Activity during the first week of school in my child development class. Not only does it help make my room more aesthetically pleasing, but it’s an engaging filler that’s easy to adapt for that intial period when schedules are in constant flux.

After noticing continuous requests for lab suggestions that are doable in 43 minute class periods, I’ve decided to do a recurring series, featuring recipes that can be completed from beginning to end in a 43 minute time frame. In some cases, longer recipes will broken into two day labs. In addition, I will include my pre-lab review questions that pertain specifically to the recipe. This helps to ensure that students are reading the recipe. It also allows me time to show any videos that may demonstrate the product or specific techniques.

PROTEIN: Polaroid Notes

Just before the pandemic started in March of 2020, I had discovered a feature on Ditch That Textbook about Polaroid Notes: Using Google Slides to create dynamic notes in an instant! I loved the concept and had an idea in mind for Protein: Poloroid Notes, which was to be one of my next topics and lessons. Unfortunately, due to the shutdown, I never got a chance to implement it with my students until a year later. This method of note taking puts the students in charge, using the resources you’ve provided! I hope this gets you thinking of all the different ways you can utilize this template in your classroom!
