One thing that I do is a bas relief from sheetrock. The kids really like that one. You peel off the gray side of the paper (you can leave a border, if you want), and usually I do something cultural. Egyptian hieroglyphics have worked well. But so does Celtic knots and Mexican art. Plus the sheetrock is pretty inexpensive. When done it can be painted or stained. Good luck!

One class has a high percentage of self contained students who come with a teaching assistant. This fall has been a battle...just to get them to come to school as I have them first thing in the morning and to keep them on task.
