On Thursday one of my favorite college professors is coming to my class to observe a students teacher. On Friday my school is having Grandparents' Day. That was all the motivation I needed to do some deep cleaning in my classroom. It's been pretty consistently clean but it needed a bit more TLC than the usual. I mean it is more than half-way through the year and it's the first time I spent almost the entire Saturday in my classroom. I made a long mental list of all the cute things I need to create to make my classroom more functional.
Now onto the pictures!
|This is a snapshot of the "makeover" process and the beginning of the year!|
|My classroom library :) I created my labels over the summer and still need to create some new ones for some new categories!|
|My library check-out system is SUPER DUPER easy - every student has a check-out slip and writes the title of the book the date they check it out and the date they check it back in.|
|Are communal class supplies|
|M&M Math Mania Corner - All my math workstations are housed in the middle.|
|Pencil sharpener, paper, and Literacy Work Stations|
(Literacy Work Stations need some cutesy labels!)
|My Cookie Conduct clip chart behavior system - it's all in its own little corner of the classroom.|
|My desk! It's tiny but I love it. I originally had a huge one but I decided it took up to much space.|
|I try to keep everything in the drawers so I ave a clean desktop.|
|This is my round the school year bulletin board. This is where I display students' work. The candy wrappers have each students name on them. The big blue rectangle in the middle is suppose to identify whatever is on display.|
