This is the view as soon as you walk into my room!
This year I re-did my big bulletin board and made half of it a word wall and the other half a focus board. I wish my last row of letters on my word wall had more room, but I'm not going back and changing it right now. We'll see how it works! This is also my reading area. I am loving the green adirondack chairs I added this year!
This is part of the back of my room and the only storage I have. I wish I had a little more, but it works! For the class jobs I will have my students names on clothespins to move around!
This is the view if you are standing in the back of the room! I love my Smartboard!
This year I am trying a new book checkout. I am hoping it will work well! Basically when a student picks a book, they will go their pocket and write down the information on their index card. Once they finish the book, they will cross it out and start over.
I am also implementing bucket filling this year! I am SO glad I found this idea on various teaching blogs! I think it will be GREAT for my students. I am excited to get it started.
This is the view of my classroom library from an angle! (I know my calendar doesn't have all the dates on there...I need more velcro!)
I would love to have another smaller bookshelf to hold my picture books. I have so many that it's hard to even browse through them!
