Day 2 of this school year and I’m already exhausted. Tomorrow the kiddos come and that is when the real fun begins. I have to admit, not being a first grade teacher anymore makes setting up a classroom a little less fun. No cute birthday chart, calendar, etc. But I do love my little home away from home, even if it is a tiny intervention room.
In the morning I share my room with two part time teachers who help with our morning intervention program. Therefore, I had to fit not one, but three guided reading tables in the room, along with all the other essential items it takes to do reading intervention with grades K-4.
So here it is…My room for 2016-2017
Welcome to my classroom in a sweet little town in Ohio.
My “Check it Out” board will be for any student in the school who wants to stop by and borrow a book. I have my best sellers in the buckets below.
New charts will go here.
Boxes full of intervention games.
My guided reading table and word wall.
Books, books and more books.
Our chairs with erasers, dry erase markers and white boards.
Our reading strategies.
Another Word Wall
In addition to finishing my classroom up yesterday before Meet the Teacher, I also quickly set up a photo background for our students. Totally forgot to do a little chalkboard writing on the black paper, but for last minute, it worked.
Happy New School Year!
