No, David

Saturday, October 1, 2011

I have updated this link with a freebie! Click here to get there.

"No, David" is one of our favorite books to begin the year or use anytime we need a little review of what our classroom expectations are. One corner of our classroom is devoted to David and our school rules. 
We read the book several times then the students chose one rule they thought was especially important to them and they typed their rule during Computer Lab time. Then each student created a picture of David and they turned out AMAZING! We had so much fun with David this year that we decided to use iMovie to create a short video of David following the rules and showed the video to the entire school. How FUN! If you would like to view the video you can see it on my classroom webpage. The poster shown above was printed at Staples. I used PhotoShop to edit the title to fit our lesson and class.

Hi Angie,
I am in love with this idea of the personalized "No David" poster! You are definitely a talented techy. I would love to print a similar poster for my class, however I don't have photoshop AND am not techy. Here's a long shot: Would you be able to change the class to "Mrs. Walls' class" on your digital copy and send it to me? I would gladly pay you for your time! Can't hurt to ask!!!

Hi,

I will be teaching for the first time this year, and I really like the David first day idea. Would it be possible for you to email me the lesson plan so that I could possibly implement it in my class.

Thanks,
