Evidence Based Terms Posters Behavior Clip Chart with classroom expectations posted above. Students will have a clothespin that move up/down the chart. All students will start at Ready to Learn each day and move accordingly. Back of the room where I keep supplies and materials. The wooden organizer on the right is where I keep copies and paper that need to be handed out to students. Dog Tags are what TeachersPayTeachers calls brag tags. I changed the name to fit with my dog theme. This will be my second year using this and I think my class last year really enjoyed them. They earn badges for all sorts of behaviors (character traits, test scores, being helpful, grades, etc.) that they keep on their necklace and can wear during the school day. Surprisingly, a lot of them wanted to wear the necklace and show them off. There were a couple students that had to be reminded to not play with them, but for the most part, they weren't ever an issue to wear. As students collect positives on Class Dojo, they will be able to move up the board. The bottom section will house all of their little dogs that they'll be able to move up as they collect positives each month. At the end of the month, they will earn a dog tag badge to add to their collection. Students will start over each month and move their way up. These are the pieces students will move on the Class Dojo board, as well as the Daily 3 Math and Daily 5 board. They will also glue one to a clothespin to move on the behavior clip chart and writing process clip chart. This is my desk. Writing Process Clip Chart. Students will move their clothespin as they work through the writing process on any given assignment to ensure they follow each step. This is where I house all materials for Daily 3 Math and Daily 5. The crates hold worksheets that students can use and the tubs hold game pieces. Then there are writing resources posted on the wall for students to reference. Classroom library One of my small group areas. The bookcases hold materials that I will need to use with groups. Daily 5 board. Students will move their dog pieces to whatever Daily 5 activity they have selected. They also have a Daily 5 punch card that allows them to only choose an activity a certain number of times. I do this because I know there are students who would only want to Read to Self and they can only choose that twice before other activities have to be done. And they cannot do the same activity two times in a row. I do put two "free choice" squares on their card so they can repeat an activity they might have already filled up. View from the back of the room. I sectioned off my whiteboard to post anchor charts or specific information based on what we might be learning. ELA will house reading/writing information. We switch off from science and social studies, so that's why the two subjects are sharing a section. More storage and pictures of my puppies to go along with the theme. My other small group section is where the horseshoe table is. There are dog bowls on each of the tables that will hold supplies for the group to use. Another view of the classroom. Another view. One more view. The cubbies hold all student textbooks. I have more than 30 students, so there are some students will have to share a cubby with a classmates. My birthday chart is to the right of the cubbies. Students will decorate a dog cupcake and then it'll get posted underneath the dog bone for that month. My Daily 3 Math board. On the strips of ribbon, I will post labels that tell students what activities they can do for Math by Myself, Math with Someone, or Math with Technology. They will also use one of their dog pieces to place in the section they've chosen to participate in for Daily 3 Math.
