    Looks great! I love all of the cabinets! The curtains to cover the storage area was a good idea. I can tell you worked hard! Have a great year!

    It looks really, really good. What a nice classroom. Can I ask though, why did you white out the titles of books? Is that some sort of copyright thing?

    It looks good!

    I can tell you are a Really Good Stuff fan- we have several of the same posters! And the same alphabet (even though mine is not up yet- I am undecided if I am even putting it up).

    Those bins look familiar. Yep, IKEA! Actually my blue ones I got from Dollar General, and then later found out they were at IKEA for less, so I got the red ones.

    Great job! The room looks awesome - I can tell you were busy :).

    I can't get into my room until Monday because they've been waxing....I'm getting antsy.

    My cursive alphabet will be staying up! I hate, hate teaching cursive. I hardly use the sign language one, inherited it from the teacher I replaced, so I might take it down next year. Although I really, really like it!

    I do like Really Good Stuff, especially their math posters, and their reading ones are usually right on target too. I'm also partial to the Stick Kids stuff from Creative Teaching Press (I have the seasonal BB sets for winter and spring.) I couldn't bet it for 5.99, and they look great up!

    We are certainly crammed up with items from Treasures...

    And your room looks fabulous! Very colorful. You're only a second year teacher...? You're awesome!

    Yep, next year will be my second full year teaching. I long term subbed for a half a year after graduation.

    I can't wait to unpack all those Treasures....I don't really know where I'll put it all. I don't quite know how it will all work either... Oh well I'm going to the beach, and will NOT think about it. Okay, I probably will....but not that much. :)

    Buck8, you rooms looks great! I was wondering about the red panels you hung to cover the top shelf, what are the clothing drawings for - that is do you also use it as a display board? If so, what have you displayed on them?

    I'm in Deaf Ed so I have to say awww.... do you really??!!:p

    When I was growing up my gen ed teachers liked to teach a few basic signs so everyone could have quiet periods and still talk. They could say stuff like..

    "Can I borrow..."
    ...glue, sissors, pencil, paper, etc.

    Thank you, Sorry, Please

    Tap (fingerspell name) please (get the attention of that person please)

    Stuff like that. We could have entire projects we would do and they were group share things and the students tried really hard not to use their mouth, concentrated on their project but wanted to converse with each other too. Since they only knew stuff to get stuff, the converstation was on task and limited. Just a thought! :cool:

    My students love the sign language activities on starfall.com. When I saw the sign language alphabet chart, I was thinking that I would buy one if there was a picture on it too.

    I love your class buck!

    Those? That is my word wall, each shirt is a letter of the alphabet. :) Love it because it hides little things I don't use often like decorations, science units...etc.

    I'd love to use more, but we get so caught up in the day, that it just slips my mind. You share lots of great ideas! :) We used to sign our spelling words three times each when we did 4 blocks spelling, but it might be a little much with 20. I'm really trying to figure out more creative ways to slip it in! I used sign language a lot when I worked in a daycare, so I do use stop and wait a lot with my class.

    Love the room, buck! Very red, white, and blue! I love the new binder shelves. I'm still waiting on mine...

    I don't like cursive either... and I have to teach it this year. Grrrr!

    I couldn't teach cursive. I always print because my cursive is so messy and when I do write using cursive it ends up part cursive and part printing. :( Handwriting Without Tears has a good cursive program. The kids can teach themselves:whistle:.

    Well, it's in our district's course of study...so I have to teach D'Nealian cursive. Yuck, b/c I honestly don't think cursive is that important in the grand scheme of life, you know? Oh...I'm sorry Susie, that I wasn't formed correctly. You know what that means, you're not going to make it into med school. Honestly, if I can read it, looks neat, I don't care if they print or wrote in cursive. :)

    Great idea! Since I am a rookie, I am not allowed to have a Word wall that high. It has to be eye level to the students. This makes it very challenging for me since I have to have two (2) Word wall - one in English & one in Spanish. I won't even get into the writing traits. With limited wall space I just don't know how I am going to pull it off. :(

    Try putting some stuff on reference folders that they sit up (think privacy folders..I'm not thinking technical tonight) and look at while they are doing assignments that would frequently use it.

    I think Cursive IS important in the grand scheme of things. Interestingly I have never thought about it and never knew other people didnt' feel this way UNTIL there was this long thread on this very topic on A to Z. The verdict on who thought it was important and who didn't was about half and half.
