P8180013Let’s be honest, my classroom can be a bit over stimulating. I tell my students all the time that the decorations I use in my classroom are the same ones that I would use if I was ten years old and lived in tree house. I opt for items that are going provide character rather than provide a educational purpose. With that in mind I thought I would take some time to explain, over the course of a few blog post, what purpose all the random items on my walls serve.

First up is the jersey wall…this started sometime last year because I had a collection of jerseys that I had used in the past and didn’t know what to do with them. So I decided that I would hang a few in my room for decoration. These jerseys included mostly ones that I had collected from different countries I had visited and were mainly from soccer teams. As I started to add these jerseys to my walls my kids started to get the idea that I really loved jerseys and decided to start donating old jerseys to hang up.P8180023This became a very common occurrence and before I knew it I had more jerseys than I knew what to do with. I had received club and national jerseys from students that included England, Spain, Mexico, Germany, US, etc. It is awesome because through the effort of my students, we have been able to transform our jersey wall into a massive display by donating some gear from their favorite teams. It’s a great way to build better relationships with my students and allows them to have part ownership of our classroom as well.

As of today,  I now have two walls in my room that are covered in jerseys. These jerseys include soccer, football, baseball, track, basketball, and even t-shirts from our fundraiser event last year. The jersey wall is very much alive and continues to grow…and we are also accepting donations.
