Every year as I walk back into my classroom, I think "Where do I even start?" and "Who can I coerce into helping me set up?" But somehow we get there. So here are some pictures of our room this year.
Here is our listening station.
And our word wall.
This is our whole group area as well as calendar wall.
Class job chart. I did it by number this year, saved a little bit of hassle.
The back of our room. Our writing station is back here, so I have dedicated all the blank cabinet space to writing posters and anchor charts. It will be pretty much covered soon.
Had to make these adorable crate seats. It's all the rage in teacher blogging world. They are the perfect height for this table and the kids really liked them!
Here is our guided reading and small group instruction area. On the wall are our decoding strategies.
My favorite area of the room, our library station. The kids LOVE reading to stuffed animals. I hope they don't outgrow that too soon. (Poor Sam I Am over on the bench, looks like he need a rest from this week too)
My teacher sanctuary.
Our standards wall.
And an idea I copied off of Pinterest. Writer's Glasses... more will be added to it as we focus on different things.
Our computer station. Always a favorite of the kiddos...
Our behavior clips. This year I added some positive levels. Seems to be a hit so far!
And last, our door. Going with our jungle theme, I HAD to include a lion. Thanks to Lindsay and Kristin for the cute pun and RAWR on the door.
