Classroom Set-Up

It's that time of year again! BACK TO SCHOOL! I've been in my classroom this week getting things ready to go for another fun and exciting school year! These photos aren't that great because I took them with my Ipad!

Classroom view from the door.  Our meeting area is over by the whiteboard, I just haven't gotten around to unraveling the rug.

Calendar Math! I add in the various components of Calendar Math as we go along. I don't want to overwhelm the kids right off the bat! In a few weeks I add in the time and place value parts, then later in the year I will add in more.

Who doesn't love a Dr. Seuss quote?!

Really cool gear clock from Kikkerland.  You can watch all of the gears in the clock move around.

Classroom library...still need to organize some of the books!

Mailboxes and writing area.  I decided to color code the mailboxes a few years ago by girls and boys.  We were always getting stuff from the office about camps, etc for girls and boys so I found this way easier.

Math resource area. 

Word Wall Board. This is where kids put their individualized spelling lists.  The area that has the chart paper is where I write the weekly word study principle.  For a more detailed description of how I teach spelling please see earlier word study post.
