Make a Wall Timeline Without a Wall



You’ve all seen them. Many of you have drooled over them. What are they? They’re large timelines covering an entire wall or walls—or even an entire schoolroom. You know the ones I mean: they’re the really cool timelines around the perimeter of the really cool, official schoolrooms (as opposed to the kitchen where many of you do school). You know the rooms I mean: the beautiful, organized, separate schoolrooms with a desk for each child, file cabinets, and bookshelves filled to the brim with books, manipulatives, binders, and tools to make learning and teaching easy. Yep, we’ve all drooled over those rooms at one time or another. But, what if you don’t have a room like that? What if you don’t have enough wall space, either on one wall or around the perimeter, in order to do a wall timeline? What if your husband (or you!) objects to having the timeline in the kitchen or in the living room?



The answer is to put your timeline on a door. Click here to read the rest of my article in today's Heart of the Matter Online. You'll find a complete how-to, helpful links, and another detailed picture.
