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! 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. 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 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! These are our Writing and Listening Centers. We also store our cut and paste supply caddies here. 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) Our classroom aquarium. You can see our two pets posing for the camera! The word wall, smartboard, and daily schedule chart. My collection of teacher stuff :wub: My personal area The whiteboard and student math manipulative kits below it. I'm totally rewriting that message it came out crooked!!! :lol: Our Comprehension Strategies Beanie Babies!! I'm still waiting on the owl to come in. Beth Newingham's genre posters View from the "foyer" 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.
