I've been so excited to share pictures of my room. It is so different - more organized, brighter, more welcoming - than last year. My BTSA mentor was amazed when she walked in for the first time! I just wanted to wait until it was "all done" to post about it. Silly me, I forgot our rooms are never all done - just done for now. So yesterday afternoon, I finally took pictures of my room in its "done for now" state. (To be completely honest, there are a few corners I skipped because they don't even qualify as done for now).
Ok, enough with the rambling, here are some pictures!
|View from the door. The board with the pink boarder will be my science board, the board with the blue writing you can't read is my writing board, the map is for our culture project (I mentioned it here and will post more about it once this group of kiddos does it). My desk is in the back right corner. I didn't have a desk last year, and I'm not so sure how I feel about it yet.|
|View from my desk.|
|Right next to the door. Social Studies board and We're So Proud board. For We're So Proud, students choose assignments they want to put up. More about that later.|
|Cubbies and we're so proud. I love how nice and neat the cubbies are at the beginning of the year!|
|Right side of my whiteboard. I'm really excited about my When You Finish Early list. I have a bunch more options laminated and cut that I will slowly introduce.|
|Close up of my desk and student supply table. My new turn in boxes are working great! The black magazine holders on my desk are for all my copies.|
|Science board, computer area, birthday board (not done yet, but the border is super cute cupcakes!), and the edge of where students' writing will hang.|
I hope you enjoyed seeing my room!
Edit: I was just reminded of classroom pictures linky parties and blog hops from Fearless in Fifth's post. So I'm linking up! Head on over to these blogs to see some fabulous classrooms!
