A Little Bit More…

I got a little bit more done in my classroom today.  School starts in exactly one week! I copied enough today to kill a few small trees, but it will get me through most of August! 🙂  I also laminated lots of new things.


I put some parts of my All About Numbers pack into my pocket chart on my Focus Wall today.  I still need to put the blank papers in next to a few of the words where we can put tally marks, the number before the number of the day and the number after it.  (I’ve had some questions about the “What’s it’s name” part–this is where you would write the number out in a word (one, two, three, etc.).  IMG_0882

I also put on new labels on my library book bins. IMG_0883

I attached them with book binding rings.  I will also label them with the same color dots as are on the front of the books. IMG_0884

I got 20 Danio fish (they look like zebras to me!) and two Clown faced sucker fish to help keep the tank clean.  We will see tomorrow how many are living!IMG_0885

I made new Literacy Work Station cards for the pockets and I’m working on smaller ones so the kiddos can come to the green IKEA tubs and get the correct one.  I’ll also have a card in the place where they need to take the tub to work on it. IMG_0886

I made new numbers for my Math Work Stations as well.  Identical cards will go on the rainbow colored drawers I’ve shared in the past.

  1. I went to my room today too. I need to print a lot of things to be ready for my safari explorers next Tuesday. I like the “all about numbers.” looking at your bins reminded me that I have to get some book rings. Where did you get yours?


  2. Did you received emails about journeys and math?

  3. Kristen: Have you ever gone to pets in the classroom? You are able to get a grant for the upkeep of your fish tank. This is my third year. It is real easy to apply. To start my fish tank they gave me $150 and years after $50. It is something to look into.


  4. Kristen, have you done anything with the lesson plan template you posted sometime of ER the summer? I really liked it but can’t find it.
