When you walk in and turn to the right you see our cubbies (which I need to clean and organize) and the crafty clipboards I've been making to display the student's work.
This is our back wall with a Social Studies bulletin board and working table.
Our classroom management system is called Paws-itive Behavior and this is our rewards chart with the rules and what not underneath. The kids place a sticker every week that they earn a "Green" week. Two green weeks earn you a reward and the more rewards you earn the better they get!
I kept up my prefix/suffix board from last year and just moved one of my bookshelves underneath.
Our Types of Questions chart and Vocabulary and Spelling posters next to our Word Work station.
Our Word Work station for our Daily 3. It has the Boggle Board, Classroom Journals, and a file crate of other Word Work activities.
The side wall and reading area.
Our reading area with the Focus Strip, strategy posters, and our CAFE board. I taped on sheet protectors to the Focus Strip panels so I can slip in paper that says the skill we are working on.
Corner and front of room.
My guided reading table and "Desk-shelf." That large white bookshelf is essentially my desk. It has my binders of info, Teacher Toolbox (Gator version for my man, since he bought me the box and all, lol) my weekly organizing trays and guided reading baskets.
Our front wall and side wall of cabinets.
My Classroom Rules poster with the yard stick frame... LOVE IT!
If you thought, "Wow. It looks like a bag of Skittles threw up in there," then my mission is accomplished! HAHA! I can't wait to tour the other teacher's room and see all my other bloggy friend's classrooms. I love getting new ideas and seeing other people's creativity. I hope you all have a wonderful beginning of the school year and your Open House goes as well as mine did.
