I've been looking forward to this post forever!!
This is Week 6 for teachers and Week 3 for students, so my room has been patiently waiting to be revealed for awhile.
With that said...my disclaimer:
As a special educator, I'm extremely fortunate to have a fabulous room in an o-l-d public city school building. We have many generations of mice that are older than all of us! Please keep that in mind when you see what I'm working with :)
I'm linking up for the fabulous Teacher Week party going on at Blog Hoppin'
PLUS the amazing duo of #2getherwearebetter
Here's my main area:
I have ONE bulletin board that triples as a focus wall, displays grit trackers, and houses anchor/visuals (no room for charts!). This is about 1/2 of the office and where I pull Guided Reading groups.
If you turn just a tad to the left, you'll see my library/shelves:
I keep our picture books up high and readers leveled down low. I also store a few bins that are exclusively for Guided Reading.
And speaking of bins:
I mentioned a mouse problem...did you know mice will eat glue, paper, crayons, and BOOKS? I now have clear plastic bins (with lids) to last the rest of my career :) They are from IKEA and I have three different sizes of the same style bin. I ♥ them!
I also scored two new-to-me tables this school year!
Where learning magic happens :)
My Daily 5 "rotation" is in between the windows:
And here's our matching table toppers:
The black cardstock on the scary cabinets (only a few open and I usually don't dare!) will soon proudly display student masterpieces:
Please note: I did not ask for bright yellow walls. I inherited them. My room is simple black and white with primary accents.
That's it! I can't wait to see everyone's home-away-from-home!
And if you have suggestions, I'd ♥ to hear them!
I'm also kicking off a new month with Farley's Currently:
My three main goals this year are simple, yet super important:
1. Health - I'm working with an amazing coach/nutritionist
to fine-tune my fitness
2. Model Portfolio - due in March, my last "hoop"
3. I'm in the process of switching to WordPress...Becca from Jumpkin Jax Design is a SAINT to deal with me during B2S season!!
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
