    I had posted pictures of my classroom a couple of weeks ago. Here are some pics I took yesterday on my way out the door. School starts Monday...I still don't feel ready!!! Hope you guys like the room :)

    Edit: You have to scroll the pictures from side to side to see all of it because they are too wide. Sorry!

    [​IMG]
    This is the "foyer" I created lol. You can see our Helpers, Birthdays, Passes, and Before You Leave reminders here. Our science kits are in the blue tupperware boxes.

    [​IMG]
    Right next to the Birthdays we have our Calendar area. Below the calendar are the lunch box shelves but you can't see them here :p

    [​IMG]
    Here is our Owl Chart. The kids check in here when they walk in by flipping their owl card. You can also see our Compliments Gumball Machine (adapted from Beth Newingham's site). Each time the students get a compliment we put one gumball in the machine. When we fill it up they get a class reward and start over again!

    [​IMG]
    These are our Writing and Listening Centers. We also store our cut and paste supply caddies here.

    [​IMG]
    Our math wall and centers assignments. (I still need to put up the math word wall but I do that as we learn terms throughout the year)

    [​IMG]
    Our classroom aquarium. You can see our two pets posing for the camera!

    [​IMG]
    The word wall, smartboard, and daily schedule chart.

    [​IMG]
    My collection of teacher stuff :wub:

    [​IMG]
    My personal area

    [​IMG]
    The whiteboard and student math manipulative kits below it. I'm totally rewriting that message it came out crooked!!! :lol:

    [​IMG]
    Our Comprehension Strategies Beanie Babies!! I'm still waiting on the owl to come in.

    [​IMG]
    Beth Newingham's genre posters

    I didn't really change anything about my library (other than put away the border boxes you see here on the floor hehe), so here's the original pic I posted of it for those of you who missed it.

    The goody bags have a poem on them that I found on the internet and the items inside go with the poem. A 3rd grade pencil, eraser, smarties, laffy taffy, life savers. I think Jem might have posted the poem? I don't remember!:confused: Thanks for the good luck wishes!!

    It was a floor sample from a local aquarium store. They were trying to get rid of it and sold me the glass tank and stand for $100!! It's very cute because those are actual blackboards! :)

    Love your room!!!
    F.Y.I~ those beanie babies strategies came from this website:http://aschilb.emsd37.org/reading/ReadingSTR.htm So you might want to give credit to the right person. (people can get really tight about that and the lady who created them is working on publishing them)

    But where did you get that gumball machine??? I like that idea.

    WOW J - what an awesome room! You have so many nice things and neat ideas. How long have you been teaching?

    I really appreciate you taking the time to not only post pics, but to explain your ideas as well. Really helpful for first-timers like myself!

    The gumball machine sounds neat but I'm not quite sure what you mean by compliments. Are these compliments you're giving the students? Or compliments they're giving each other...?

    I didn't know! I saw them for the first time on Jem's site so I figured she made them. Other teachers on this site have also given her credit for them as well. I will update it now. :eek:hmy:

    I created the Gumball Machine with the Print Shop 22. I edited a clip art image of one and blew it up on my printer.

    Thanks! This will be my fourth year teaching. The way compliments work in our class is if someone walks by our class in the hallway (i.e. another teacher, teacher assistant, administrator, visitor) and gives our class a compliment we put a gumball in the machine. Also, if they come into our class and give us a compliment we put one in as well. My compliments to the kids don't count towards gumballs because they'd fill it up way too fast! lol :lol:

    As has been said, you have a fantastic room. I am jealous of your furniture --- almost looks like it came from an Ethan Allen catalog or something. Did the school provide it?

    lol thanks! The school did provide it. Every teacher in my school has the same armoire, desk, and bookshelf. It sometimes splinters up though so I put a cloth over the desk.
