Jungle Themed Literary Genre Bulletin Board Idea

Hartville Elementary SchoolThis past week, I had the extreme privilege of visiting my childhood elementary school to check out the newest and best in classroom decorations! Despite their busy schedules - meetings and last minute preparations before school started the next day - the gracious teachers at Hartville Elementary welcomed me into their colorful and engaging world; a world in which they will spend countless hours the next 180 days, imp!acting the lives of the children in our community. I thank you all for dedicating your lives to helping our children grow, both as students and individuals. Here's to a brilliant school year, ladies and gents! {And thanks a million for allowing me the opportunity to visit your classrooms! I had a blast!}

As part of the Accelerated Reader (AR) program, students are encouraged to explore each of the literature genres. To help her students make selections, Mrs. Walters created this fantastic "Genre Wall" that features a poster for each of the genres and fits fantastically into her classroom jungle theme {of course!}.
