    I LOVE everyone's pics!!!! :2up: My classroom floors were being washed/waxed this week, so I plan on "putting it back together" over the weekend. If I can figure out how, I will post my pics. My classroom is literally 1/3 the size of these shown! But, I only will have 16 in my class, trade off I guess:blush:

    QUESTION:

    Do you all put ALL your books out at once, or add, subtract, etc. throughout the year? I want my classroom library to be multi-level and inviting, but not overwhelming.

    I put all my leveled books out (about half of my books). Then, I keep the other books grouped for units we do. If we do space, then I take out all the space books and put them on our display shelf.

    Later on I want to sort my books by theme or genre, so kids can have access to these books all year. I need to think of a system so the books don't get mixed up easily, and so that students are picking JUST RIGHT books from the leveled bins, and books of interest to them in the theme bins. But this probably won't happen until next year!!! I have too many things I want to change on my plate for this year.

    So sorry I haven't answered questions sooner....I was vacationing in Key West! :) Brag! Anyway....to answer the questions...

    1. My seat pockets are from Childcraft.com

    2. My BEE polite, BEE prompt (etc) is made from wooden bees at an AC MOORE craft store and with foam sticky letters from a craft store.

    3. My ABC line is from http://edushop.edu4kids.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=4658

    Number line
    http://edushop.edu4kids.com/catalog/product_info.php?products_id=6424

    (I didn't buy it from this site though...)

    4. My letter stamps are organized into two of those craft supply organizers from Wal-Mart. The container they came in were very small and the kids alsways put them in wrong. I also stuck foam letters in the bottom of each section of the organizer...

    I assume that each container has enough spaces for each letter of the alphabet?

    Those containers come in different configurations. I think one with 26 spaces would have compartments too small to work. You might want more than 1 even if you could get one with 26 compartments.

    First and foremost you need to download your photos to another site; I use PHOTOBUCKET.com
    but there are others that you can use.

    After that; it's pretty easy (NOW, it's easy for me! :haha: )

    Another forum angel showed me how to post.

    Love this site,
    Sandra

    Hi there!

    We use tribes agreements too here in Alaska and I saw your cute posters for mutual respect, listening, appreciations, etc. Where did you get those?

    Thanks!

    just a thought...are you sure it's cutting your photos down? There is a scroll that runs across the bottom of the screen and you need to "slide" it across to see the full picture.
    Just a thought.

    I put an apple for the parents at open house. I attatch the poem:

    "an apple for the teacher is really nothing new
    except when you remember parents are teachers too!"
