So, I just realized that I never posted my classroom pictures. Yes, school started in August and it is now almost February...better late than never?
This is probably the first year that I am truly happy with the way my room turned out. Last year I was in Montana the week before school so I felt rushed to get things ready, and every year before that I've had to switch rooms, which is always chaos.
Here is the finished product.
|Reading Area with a Dr. Seuss poster that I made.|
|another view of the reading center.|
|Reading Goal Bulletin Board with Chic-fil-A cow. |
As students get closer to their goal, they put a clothes-pin
with their name on it on the ladder.
|Encouraging students to be "bucket-fillers"--give compliments.|
Not sure where this idea first came from, but a lot of teachers at
my school do it with their classes. The buckets now have students'
names on them.
|Stole this idea from pinterest.|
|Grammar Island sentence. Our mascot is the marlins.|
|After students read a book, they fill out a recommendation card|
for the board.
|Agenda Board. It's a little different now.|
|Calendar, "student center" (where they turn their papers in), and my desk.|
|My favorite thing in the room.|
I've had this for a few years now. Pretty sure I first
saw something similar to it in a book somewhere. I love it.
|cubbies with printables found on pinterest.|
|Welcome to 3G!|
Ask me if my room is still this clean. When I left today, I couldn't even see the wood of my desk.
Any of you educators have any teacher organizational tips??
