I made it through the first week of teacher workdays and I made it through Back to School Night!! I loved meeting all of my kiddos! It's going to be such a fun year:)
I wanted to share my classroom with you.
Back in my last post, I shared what it looked like when I first walked in the door....about a month ago....you can see that here.
And here is my room now!!!
Let me give you a quick tour. I snapped these pictures about 10 minutes before the parents arrived.....I'm so lucky because I almost forgot....let's just say there was some last minute changes :)
Here are my Decoding Strategy posters. You can find these over at my TpT store along with bookmarks that match!! LOVE LOVE LOVE these!!!
Here is the Informational section of my classroom library along with some literary and Dr. Seuss texts on the top shelf. Love my little Melonheadz kids at the top. It says "Reading Rocks in First Grade!" These are placed on my small group reading bins.
Here is the other side of my library. More Literary texts and BIG Books.
My "BEE an Author" board. Our county has adopted the Lucy Calkins Series as it's writing program so I had to make sure I had room to display all of the wonderful writing I'm going to see this year ;)
Here are my writing tool boxes. Each table shares a caddy and each table is labeled by an animal. I've never done this before, but when I saw Creative Clips had her Zoo set out...I had to do it!!
Here are the reading boxes for each group.
and their Math Tool baskets.
Here are my birthday treats. I'm actually giving TWO of these out on the very first day of school!!
Here is a little treat I had for my parents. I found this idea on Pinterest...I don't have the exact link but this poster I made on my own.
And finally a little treat for my new kiddos!!!
I had such a good time tonight and look forward to sharing many more ideas with you!!!
Thanks for taking a peak at my 1st grade classroom....my home away from home! :)
