While I have some free time in the summer I thought I would take the time to up-load some pictures from my classroom to share. I hope you enjoy them!
The front of our classroom.
We earn brownie points for compliments for hall behavior. We earn warm
and fuzzies for our buckets by being kind to each other.
These are our penny jars. The kids earn pennies for doing good work and completing classroom jobs. They use their money to buy items in the class store every other Friday. They can trade their pennies for nickels and dimes later in the year.
Our Daily 5 board. I didn't do much with this last year.
I'm hoping to make it a more usable board next year.
We post "fancy" words we hear and read on this board.
Whole group teaching area with CAFE board, calendar,
SMART board, and teaching easel.
Computer stations and display book cases
(I change out the books according to our themes). The curtains will look familar if you are familiar with Mrs. Jump- she was my inspiration! THANK YOU MRS. JUMP!
Special quiet reading area
CAFE board pre-strategies
Reading tree, teacher desks, and library
The bench lids lift up and store our wooden blocks. I love this storage solution!
I organized my classroom library by book type: Non-Fiction (red bins), Fiction (green bins), Favorite Authors (yellow bins), and Favorite Series (blue bins).
The Book Hospital really cut down on students interrupting me to tell
about a rip or page missing. Later on I had the kids put a post-it on
the page so I could quickly repair and return the books to the library.
Some of my teacher storage- still needs some work! =)
Our favorite author bins and leveled readers in the black bins.
Another view of our classroom.
The blue cubbies hold all our math and art supplies.
The students hung their book bags on their labeled hooks.
Thanks for visiting our classroom! Come back soon!
