Today I'm linking up with Latoya from Flying Into First Grade for her Let's Get Acquainted linky.
This week's topic is the 3 most favorite places in your classroom.
That’s so tricky! I have had a tough time with liking the arrangement of my classroom this year. I’m sad to say I don’t have many pictures to put up. It seems like the first year in a new grade never leaves my room looking neat and pretty.
- The first would be my business board. It is the hub of my daily operations! This is a photo from the very beginning of the year. I have everything on this board that I need to make the day run smoothly. I keep track of transportation changes and notes on the white board, clip notes for other places underneath, and have all the daily schedule stuff for everyone to see. I also put up a lunch menu and hang out lunch order slips. It makes it easy to tell a sub where to find everything needed to organize the day.
- My other place would be my tall bookshelf. I built it with my husband to fit in my last classroom. It has rows of magazine holders with all of my themes and topics that I teach through the year. The kids do not take books from the shelf – it contains all of my books for teaching during the year. It makes me happy to see everything organized and in rainbow color order!
- The last place is my guided reading table. It is in front of my window and I have all of my materials organized behind it. I will take a picture tomorrow if I get a chance!
I have a new set of centers! I prettied up all of my spelling centers that I keep in spelling pockets. They look so cute now and my students are loving the new look. Click on the images to pick up a set on TPT.
Here is the other piece of my spelling work in my classroom. Click on the images to grab a copy of the activity sheets I use with my class.
I keep all of my materials organized in these envelopes and place them, along with my students’ lists in the crate. It makes for a pretty easy system.
On another note, I picked up this cart on sale last summer and have yet to use it in my classroom. I saw a bunch of teachers used it and had it in their blog pics. When I saw the price, I couldn’t help but pick it up. Any suggestions on what to use it for?
Have a happy Monday!
