Hey friends! I'm a little behind, but I wanted to share my classroom with you! We started school Tuesday, and as you can imagine, I'm so exhausted! So I figured it was a great time to relax as I share my space with you!
This year, I painted my bulletin boards and am so excited how they turned out! I leave my boards blank at the beginning of the year so that we have plenty of space for our learning materials throughout the year.
View from the door...
This is my math area. I am using Reagan's Free Math Posters. The posters are student friendly and help out with teaching routines at the beginning of the year.
This is my storage/listening center area. I am using my classroom labels packet. This includes the inspirational quotes. I found the larger inspirational quotes here.
Now on to my classroom library. I have a post coming about how I organize it but here are a few pictures...
I used pulsar pink Astrobrights paper to identify my leveled readers section. I think students should be able to browse books both on their level and by theme that they want to read, so I have both in my library.
Table view. I am using one bucket as a classroom management tool and providing positive feedback to the tables that are working nicely together. Each time I give them a compliment, or praise, I place a pom pom in the bucket. The other bucket is the table's tidy tub. They shouldn't actually be next to each other..but my new firsties must have moved it (and I was too tired to notice ) HA!
My writing center area...
My bins for my sub tub and writing folders.
I hope to update our classroom pictures half way through the year so you can see how I use these areas for anchor charts.
Thanks for stopping by!
