classroom

WOW!  It is so hard to believe that I get to meet my sweet firsties in just a couple of days.  This week has been busy with staff development.  I will say that this year has been one of the best.  I have lots of ideas that I will be incorporating in my class this school year.  One of the things that you will hear about frequently is High Yield Strategies.  They are really amazing and the kids are so engaged!  I will share more about them soon.  Today, I thought I would post an update on my classroom.  It still needs work but is coming together.

This is a small portion of the front of my classroom.

This is the second half of the front.  I have moved my reading table to the front of the room.  I think I am going to really enjoy having it there and it will give more room for students to work in groups around the room.  In the past, I have used seat sacks but am going to try something different.  Each table will have bins that have 3 drawers.  Each drawer will hold specific items.  Their Daily 5 work will stay in the colored drawers at the front of the room. I am hoping it helps to cut down on the clutter.  We shall see. Smile

This area will be where students get their supplies for math tubs and writing center.

The last picture for tonight is my word wall.  The picture isn’t very clear but I LOVE it! Smile
