    I'm wondering if anyone takes photos of there classroom layout, and posts them on here. Obviously not of children working, but of the classroom.

    I think this would be really helpful to those of us who are "layout" challenged.

    I think I rearrange my classroom about 50 times at the beginning of school. It always looks the same to me! :)

    Is this something we could do. I'm going to school this Tuesday, and can take some pics.

    If you search, there were many who posted pics at the beginning of the school year in both elementary and secondary threads.

    This is my 7th grade language arts classroom. I replaced the wood study tale with a regular table a month or so ago. The other one fell apart! I also have a second computer on there now, with the printer in the middle.

    I put my desks in groups for the next unit, but I didn't take any photos. I'm going to do that when I go to school this week to feed my fish.

    No photos, but reallly easy to visualize:

    6 rows of 7 desks each.

    At the front of the room:
    Metal cabinet with 2 doors and 2 shelves. Next to that is the computer cabinet. Atop the cabinets is my document camera (Aka "Elmo") and computer moniter. Next to that is my teacher's desk, and next to that is a wooden podium.

    I have a blackboard across the front and side of my room, with a pulldown white screen in the front. The projector is mounted from the ceiling.

    My side board contains a bulletin board, about 4'long by about 3' high.

    I don't think looking at other classrooms will ever get old to me. It's always fun to see them! :)

    I love my room with tables and no desks. I was worried at the beginning of the year, but it's worked out fine. So much less clutter. Still talking, but nothing unusual. The ones that talk would talk to the walls if I put them in a corner.

    I love pic threads, too! Ancientcivteach, I am stealing some of your ideas. I have a tropical theme, too, and really liked your use of the beach mats! Cute and creative!

    Thank you, I saw that in another teacher's room a few years ago. I use push pins. Keeps things neat and organized without having five-thousand staples in my walls. I was able to order the clip boards from the district warehouse so it didn't cost me anything.

    What grade do you teach?! The desks seem so weird for a primary grade. They look like high school desks.

    I really love your room! I don't know how far this would go with high schoolers, but its the most colorful and creative classroom I have seen for a social studies room. Where did you get all of your posters and things?

    Thank you! Our school went "theme-y" this year and since I moved to fifth grade I was encouraged to let my inner elementary teacher roam free :)

    I did a lot of searching for ideas by googling "beach theme" classrooms, searching this site, and proteacher. I found many great ideas!

    I got the beach items at Big Lots, Family Dollar, and the Dollar Tree. Luau items were all over this year - it was really fortunate that it corresponded with the school theme.

    The president timeline and quotes posters I ordered from my local teacher store. My favorite thing in my room though is that content wall where I post my guiding questions and vocabulary. Word walls were a requirement this year, and I can't believe how much I love this and how it seems to help the students!
