Bloghoppin' is running day two of Teacher Week and today's topic is WHERE.
My plan was to run into school yesterday, snap a bunch of pics of my "under construction" room, take a few of the building on the way out and be done with it. BUT, that didn't happen. Too many people in there working and everyone wanted to talk. So I had to stay. And I forgot to take pictures of the outside of the building. And I probably should have checked to see what else was on the Teacher Week list of blog topics because I am sure I should have taken pictures of other stuff and I do NOT plan on going back. So we'll just have to make the best of it, shall we?
I am going to share with you pictures of my classroom... the place I spend most of my waking hours most of the year. And this is really going to be keeping it real folks, because I feel like I'm showing myself undressed. I added some labels to the pictures so you can imagine what it will really look like.
I hope. You may want to close your eyes and just peek through your fingers for these...
I am planning on taking all the
I am looking forward to having my SitSpots this year. I'm hoping it will help my seconds stay in their space a little better.
Since we have tables, this is where my students keep their folders, journals, etc. This way everyone still has their own personal area, but everything stay organized. I can call students to get their reading journal (or whatever they need) by table number or by workbox color.
On top of the workboxes are more containers of books. These are related to themes/authors we are currently focusing on our that my kiddos are interested in. To start the year it will be school, Froggy, insects, butterflies and being me.
And now our tour has ended. I obviously have lots more work to do, but I'm really liking the way it is coming out. Last year everything was mostly yellow and black. This year I added pops of other colors and it has really changed the look of it all.
Be sure to head back to Bloghoppin' to visit other classrooms. Ones that I am sure are not in such disarray as mine! I love looking at other people's classrooms and seeing what goes on.
