I guess I went MIA last year for... the whole year, but I took pictures of my classroom, and I would like to share them now.
|My library and my Workshop Way philosophy signs (see my Workshop Way post).|
|Another look at my reading rug area. Notice the large black couch cushion... great for this year's alternative seating!|
|Here's my word wall... I got the cute zoo themed alphabet sign from Teachers Notebook.|
|My 'days of school place value board'. Got the little holders from the Dollar Tree and just stapled them into the wall!|
|My wonderful library! (They don't all have labels yet)|
|Workshop Way puzzles and Thinkers, as well as a puzzle and Thinker lost and found and a book hospital!|
|This thing is nifty for centers or little activities. The red cup on top holds like 25 sticks for the "What to do when you are done" problem. I tell them to "pick a stick" and each stick coincides with a bin. They take it back to their seats and complete the activity quietly. The blue mailbox on top holds Risk Sheets, 5 Across pages, and other Workshop Way tasks.|
|I set this up later in the year for supplies. On top you will see The Prince (our pencil sharpener under the blue bucket... it says "Shh! The Prince is sleeping!) and little containers for spelling words and word wall words.|
Anyway, that was my room last year. This year it will be very different because there will be NO DESKS!! I will be doing alternative seating! Check out my other posts to see how things are progressing!
