My Room and Some Stuff to Share

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! :-)

My door:

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!


  1. Looks great! I love the attendance idea and I pinned it to my Pinterest!
