Each class in that comes to art has their own shelf, it's where I store all the individual art folders with all the artwork inside. We have a high ELL population here and my students are little (Kinder-Grade 2), so I decided to add teacher photos this year to help kids figure out where their work belongs.
I will tape a small class list up there as well in case I have a child who forgot to add the class code to the back, I can quickly refer to the list. Also, I frequently get asked to remind the kids of the class codes, and this way they can just look for their teacher and they've got it.
Do you run on a rotating schedule? Does it drive you nuts? I've posted this outside my classroom, I'll change the arrow for Week 1 and Week 2 weekly. Hopefully it will cut down on, "Do we have art today?" and "Is it Week 1 or Week 2?"
Here is an Art Room Voice Level chart that I adapted from Splats, Scraps, and Glue Blobs. I made the language a little simpler for my little ones. I like the idea of having the kids stop and think about what their volume is (they can hold up the # of fingers to show what they think) and then adjust accordingly.
I also adapted something wonderful I found here at Coral Vs Salmon. I love the simple language and will be a great reflection on the class at the end of the period.
