I finally got around to it- a classroom tour! Please note that we start the year with pretty much nothing on the walls aside from titles of bulletin boards as we add everything with the kiddos. So it's pretty bare bones, but here goes:
Our "Welcome Board" outside of the classroom door. We were required to keep our extra desks in our rooms this year as there was no where to store them, so I converted one into a little table outide our door. The second picture is my chair in our carpet area. I hung a sweater organizer from the ceiling with fishing line and use it as a weekly handout organizer.
Front of the room shot. It was the end of the day so the chairs are all stacked. Each pom pom is attached to a group number to be hung over the groups of student desks.
Our name tags attached to the back of chairs. Got this idea from Hope @ Second Grade Shenanigans. I just attached them with a little ribbon.
Our classroom library. I have three shelves divided into "Fiction", "Non-Fiction", and "Good Fit Books" bins. We also have a basket of "Super Monos Lectores" (Super Reader Monkeys) that the students can read to.
We have magnetic walls, so I attached my "LEER" letters with magnets to the wall and below is a magnetic bookshelf.
"What do you Recommend?" board. We will be adding our book recommendations to this as the year progresses.
Our supply cubbies and book boxes. I used my Cricut to print out the numbers and then use contact paper/clear packing tape to attach them.
Our CAFE board, letters compliments of The Resourceful Room and our "Superkid of the Week" board. (I was the first!- Super Teacher that is.)
Science, Social Studies, and Math Word Walls. The calendar labels on my Math Word Wall are available here.
Our classroom expectations- you can find more about how we created this board here. Also, our writing center...still in the works.
Our behavior chart- students start each day on prepared to learn and move their clips up or down.
Birthday Board- Scrunchy border idea from Peace, Love and First Grade.
Closets with our class schedule on the left, mirror (above it it reads "reflection of a superkid"), homework chart below, birthday board, class jobs chart below, and our "Superkid Promise" in English and Spanish on the right.
Classroom alphabet. You can snag a copy here.
And there you have it (for now). I'll share more as we get things up!
