Blog Hoppin' is having a fun back to school link up. We're answering those "wh" questions... One each day!
Next, here are a few photos of my classroom. I'm not sharing lots of photos, because my classroom is NOT finished. I go back officially on Monday the 25th. Students start on the 27th. I have a few more things to finish up before then. I do not have a theme.... just lots of blue and green. My goal was to have a room that is organized and cheerful.
Here is the view from behind my desk. It probably will not be this clean a month from now. Beyond the desk are my pocket charts where centers will be assigned. My drawers and bins for center materials are on a table and my Smart Board is hanging next to the table.
This carpet area on the other side of my classroom serves as a meeting space. We also use the space as a small-group work area and a spot to read silently or with a friend. I have shelves and baskets of books by topic and theme. The drawing on the board is one my daughter created in June. I won't be erasing it until I'm sure she won't visit the classroom again! In the back corner under the flag is my clip chart and a nook-like area where students will be able to work on the floor.
Here's my sink/bulletin board/counter combo! We'll start the year learning about trees and the forest habitat, so I've hung posters related to that. Usually, this board holds student work.
