Without further ado, welcome to my classroom! Enjoy looking around and seeing how my classroom works!
This is the view into my classroom from the door.
Once you walk in and look to the left you will find our math manipulatives and also our pocket chart for reading and math centers.
Here is an up close look at our reading centers rotation chart.
Here is an up close look at our math centers rotation.
These folders are found behind the door. This is where my students turn in their work.
Here is my calendar area that is on the wall where the door is.
If you keep moving to the left you will find my desk area and my small group area! My bookshelf holds all of my binders with all of my instructional documentation (guided reading, running records, writing conferences, math small groups, first steps)
If we keep moving to the left you will find my anchor chart wall. This wall is empty at the beginning of the year, but is quickly filled up as we dive into the school year.
In the picture of above, you can see our classroom library in the left corner. Here is an up close look at our library. My books are sorted by genre. They each have a sticker on them. The sticker on the bucket is the same. So if the book has an orange sticker with a 1 on it, the students find the bucket with an orange sticker with a 1 on it. Best way to organize!
As we keep moving to the left you will see the overflow of anchor charts on the window and also my students listening center area. I have 2 listening areas with multiple headphones so students don't have to listen to the same book as their centers partner.
Here is a close up of the listening area. It is organized just like the library. The books and buckets have colored stickers to help students put them back in the right bucket.
As we move to the left you will find my students writing center. They love pulling the bench up to the table and they will write and write!
This is where my students keep their extra supplies. They each have their own baggie with their name on it. If they run out of glue or crayons, they can go grab their extras. This is where the white boards are housed as well and textbooks too!
Our computer area includes 3 mac books. Our district is very blessed with great technology!
These are our math tubs that we use during math centers. These math tubs include lots of different games that they students have learned how to play either in whole group lesson or small group with me.
And that's it! You have seen all the way around the classroom! I hope you enjoyed the tour and let me know if you have any questions about how I put my classroom together!
