    Beautiful classroom!! It looks like you put in a lot of work. Now, this isn't your first year, right?? I can't remember. Either way, I'm impressed. :) And it looks so big!

    Nope. Fourth year. But first at this school. Hence the general feeling of disorganizement. Is that a word? Disorganization.

    Peachyness: I taught fifth for two years, and middle school for half of a year. I love third. They are so funny.

    Czacza-I got them online. It was $5 for shipping, and you can pick out 10 posters. I like that they are small, but they do have some large ones as well. My husband pointed out it should have been 'get caught reading' on the door, but that's ok. http://www.getcaughtreading.org/celebrityposters.htm

    Oh my gosh!! I am in LOVE with your classroom! I have been jotting down ideas from each picture and just soaking in your creativity. Want to come to AZ next fall and help me set up my first classroom? ;)

    I love the little stage and picnic area outside your room! I would absolutely take advantage of that as much as possible.

    I would love to go into business setting up rooms. That would be my dream. But I don't know how many teachers could afford to pay me for that.... But I would do EVERYTHING. Boards, decorations, etc. It would be so much fun.

    A parent came to me this morning and said she had a HUGE frame to make a picture portal with for the Harry Potter corner. She's going to bring it in, and we're going to hang gauze in the middle-I'm going to see if I can paint a portrait on it. Then the kids can step through the portrait to the common room.

    We're such geeks. :haha:

    Ms.AD1-PM me with your e-mail address, and I'll send you the posters. Each beanie animal represents a reading strategy.

    My school is by Oakland, CA. The rooms are huge, yes. But part of that is because I don't have a desk-that really opens up the room. The downside is no air conditioning. My thermometer read 90 degrees today. We were DYING.

    And yes, lots of books. Over 4,000. There are still boxes of books shoved in my closet because I have no where to put them. Boo.

    Hehehe. I make up words all the time.

    I am in my fifth year; we are close in experience, and it's amazing to see how many books both you and I have gathered in the past few years.

    I also want to take photos of my students reading soon. I forgot all about the Caught Reading idea; I can use that with my students' personal pictures and encourage a few of them (who are more into math) to get into books.

    You are a fabulous person, and it shows in your classroom. Thank you so much for sharing your photos!

    Last year when I moved to fifth I collected over 1000 books for my class! All I had to do was leave a note in the teacher's lounge asking for books that they didn't want or need anymore. BOY did they follow through! :lol:
