More Classroom Pictures 2013-2014
I’ve been working in my classroom this week and here’s a look at what I’ve done:
I got this shelf at IKEA earlier this week and I’m going to use it for my Literacy Work Stations. The kiddos will come get their bucket (going to add labels to them) and then take them to the assigned place. 🙂 I’ll share more about my IKEA trip this week. 🙂
I’m using the large binder clips as name cards on my mailboxes this year. I usually use stickers right inside the box, but when they put papers in, you can’t see their name anymore, so this will help with that problem! 🙂
My new fish tank. I thought it would be a calming thing for my kiddos. What kinds of fish to get? 🙂
These are my Reading A-Z books I use during some guided reading groups. I need to make a few more labels (I didn’t know I had so many books at those levels!). This shelf will get a curtain as well next week…I just need to finish hemming it.
This is what one basket will look like. Crayons will go in the ziploc containers. After I went and bought all the containers, I realized I probably had enough for my whole classroom at home with all my other plastic containers! 🙂
I did have two of these shelves holding dry erase boards and clipboards under my Promethean board earlier this week, but after thinking about it, I was worried that the kiddos couldn’t reach the board, so I moved the dry erase boards to another space and combined the clipboards.
My husband (who is also a teacher) came to school today to bring lunch and then he took down the green paper on these bulletin boards and put up black so they all would match! 🙂 We think it helps the Promethean Board blend in as well. 🙂
A view a little more to the left. The round table will be for my assistant to do interventions.
Right next to the office, there is a closet that I share with the teacher next door. It used to be a restroom, but they took out the toilet and put in shelves for us to store things on. This cart you see is our cart of science materials.
Another look at my new shelves from IKEA! I love them! The rainbow cart will be my Math Work Stations and on top of the white shelf, is our “Welcome Area” The children will be able turn in their homework folders in the yellow bucket and pick up their morning folder or morning work where you see the white bucket. I used to have this happen right inside my door, but it was getting so congested! The kiddos would stop right inside the door, put their backpacks down and unload everything there, so this is going to move that activity out of the doorway! 🙂
