This is the front of my desk. The students make their lunch choice here. I have all of the lunch choices for the year typed on cards that are in a magnetic pencil holder on the lower right corder of my desk. The choices are clipped along the top and students use the number circles to move under their choice.
I hung my hanging organizer over the back of my filing cabinet. Then, I covered the side of the filing cabinet with paper and border. In the corner behind my desk is where I have my binders with all of my master copies.
On the pink board I now have "Writer's Toolbox". This is where I will put things about punctuation, capital/lowercase letters, and finger spaces. I will put it up as I teach it to the kids. I'm not sure what will go on the left side... probably anchor charts.
This is my Promethean board. It fits two wide drawer units very nicely underneath. There are math and literacy station supplies stored in the drawers.
The green baskets will house my literacy stations. (I'm using the awesome center stuff from Made for 1st Grade for my labels and rotation schedule.) Again, I don't know what will go on this board, but I'll put up stuff as I create it with the kids. On the right are two drawer units stacked up. The drawers are labeled, but I want to put scrapbook paper in the front of the drawers to block all my "stuff".
I got the bar and containers from IKEA this summer. The pink cup is for sharpened pencils, white is for extra erasers, and the black cup is for dull pencils.
Ta-da! Here's my tree!! I L.O.V.E. it! (Thanks, Mrs. Jump, for your directions!) The directions said to use a golf umbrella, but I just didn't have the space for something that big so mine is a regular size umbrella.
This is the back of my room. The white tub is where they'll turn in their homework folders. The green board is still empty. On the front of the silver cabinet I now have month cards where I will put their pictures for their birthdays... I'll post a picture when it's done.
This is my back bulletin board. I borrowed someone's idea for my schema board, but can't remember whose right now (let me know if it was you!).
These are my student mailboxes. On top is a 3 tray unit to hold blank copy paper, masters that have already been copied, and items that need to be sent home in upcoming weeks.
This filing cabinet is directly inside of my door. The hooks are for the students' lunch tags.
These are my classroom expectations. (Thanks Mrs. Herring for making the cute bow!)
My Word Wall (underneath are my math tub baskets).
For some reason, I took pictures of my entire classroom, but not my calendar that I'm so excited about! The kids come on Thursday! I'll probably post more pictures this weekend. :)
