This year was really exciting for me! I got to decorate a classroom BEFORE school started! Last year, I took over a first grade class 6 weeks into the school year and it never really felt like my room so I was really anxious to get started. I crafted and bought a bunch of things for my theme over the summer. This is what I walked into 2 weeks before the first day!
I spent probably about 12 hours getting this room to where it is now. I organized lots of cabinets and made it workable for me!
What you see when you walk in
My desk area since I got rid of teacher desk
Guided Reading Area
Student supplies and chill out desks
Smart board area, the cart to the left with the stool is where I hook up my laptop and sit during most of my lessons
The green washi tape is easy for me to right my learning targets each day! The carts and storage drawers are used for centers during our ELA block
Job and Transportation Charts
I stole this idea from my teammate for Open House night!
Ready for another successful school year!
