This is our "mat" area. Each of the kids sit in one of the square that I call their "houses". (Try to ignore the boxes, a bookshelf is on the way to clear up that clutter!)
This is the front of the room. The board on the right is my Promethean Board. It is like a giant touch screen computer monitor. I. LOVE. IT!!!!!
This is my computer station and encouragement bulletin board. I am hoping I win a drawing at school and get another computer. (Keep your fingers crossed for me.) The bulletin board is one we do the first day of school. Each child feels out a little card that says, "I am a star because...". They are soooo cute filling out their answers!
This is our math meeting area. This year I decided to use less of my pre-made posters and more student made posters. So far it is working out great!
This is where I do a lot of my small group instruction. I love the little white board that K fixed for me this summer!
This bulletin board is for displaying the final copies of writing the kids have completed. I put name labels on the blue paper, so I can see at a glance who hasn't completed the assignment yet.
This is our information bulletin board. I have our behavior chart, class list, rules, student of the month, newsletters, lunch menu, and "mailboxes" right here by the classroom door. the little stars you see hanging on the right are my hall passes.
Star of the Week spot! (That's a picture of me in 2nd grade)
The library area with a little love seat (Thanks MA!) for curling up with a good book.
My writing station and color printer/copier (thanks K!) area. All of our writing supplies are kept here.
Listening station. I have little cassette players in the bags for the kids to read along as they listen to a book. It is so funny teaching them how to use a cassette!
The final view...all the desks ready for little people!
Thanks for coming on a tour with me. Head on over to Amy's to see what everyone else is sharing today on Finer Things Friday!
