Hello, Hello! I hope your week is off to a good start!! Let me tell you, today has been quite a productive for this girl! I went back into my classroom for the ehhh fourth time I think now! While we have been able to get in for about 2 weeks, it wasn't until today that we were able to get our keys back!! YAYYYY!!! I think I am pretty stinking close to being done with set up of my room & I couldn't be happier!! This means that I can focus on the meat of what I need to get done for the next 2-3 weeks, before the kids arrive bright eyed and bushy tailed!!
So since my room is finally in a decent condition to share photos, I'm linking up with Ashely from Flying High in First today for her Classroom Tour Linky! I took LOTS of pictures... I will try to keep my words short & sweet so that this doesn't end up being a mile long! ;)
The picture above is the view from the door!
the 5th graders on our campus, play. I also have my calendar & birthday board below the clock. In years past, my
Now for some close(r) ups!
The white shelf with the red boxes is full of community supplies (markers, crayons, & highlighters).
& I hope you're not bored....... But before I'm done... I want to share some of the little things that make me love the setup this year so much!
First, my centers pocket chart! I got this gem right towards the end of the school year and put it to use immediately! It's a magnetic pocket chart!! This has by far been the easiest way for me to manage my centers. I rotate out my centers about every 2 weeks (sometimes a week and half, depends on what I have in the centers). I do a mix of Daily 5 and other centers that I make. Why?!? Well I will save that post for another day, SOON I promise!
So that's it.... for now at least!! Thanks for stopping by & reading! Oh & don't forget... My 100 Followers Giveaway is going on through Thursday!! You don't want to miss out on some of these awesome prizes!!!! You can also share it daily to get additional entries!! :)
