I have been wanting to post pictures of my room for a couple of weeks. But, I just had too much work for my class to get on here and post anything. Now that I am *kind of* where I need to be, I thought I'd take a few minutes and share some of this summer's work with some classroom photos. (Sorry, I know they're not the best quality. I used my iPhone.) Let me know what you think in the comments, if you would! :-)
I didn't take many whole-room shots this year. Not sure why. Here is the closest thing I have:
My "Celebrity of the Week" board. I have started decorating it with my items in this picture, but it is only halfway complete:
My Math Corner:
My number posters (at the top) are available for purchase in my Teachers' Notebook store for only 99 cents. I think they are awesome for helping students with place value (if I do say so myself!).
The Calendar Board:
If you like my weather cards, you can download them for FREE from my Teacher's Notebook shop. Just print them out, mount on cardstock, laminate, and cut out. I hole punched mine at the top and put them on a ring. It just hangs on a normal push-pin. The students love choosing the correct weather card. Then they read a sentence (you can kind of see it in the picture). It says "Today's weather is:" and the students insert "sunny" (which is all we have had here since school started.). I hope you enjoy these with your kiddos, too!
I made the colorful pockets out of card stock and just stapled them together and onto the board. I painted wooden stars and glued them to tongue depressors for "today, tomorrow, and yesterday" and used scrap-booking stickers for the words on both the stars and the pockets. Maybe I'll get a better picture today so you can see it better!
My lunch count/attendance:
I use electrical tape, shrinky dink magnets, and the side of my file cabinet! So easy!
New idea for this year's library corner:
My new peg board writing center. I personally love it!
