I am linking up with Brigid for a classroom tour, since I start school in 5 days I am having trouble getting the posts done I am wanting to do. Really wanted to post these picts last week but didn't get around to it.
It's a jungle/wild theme classroom
Close up view of my teaching area. Love my pocket chart with zebra pockets from Mardel which I used lots last year. I keep all kinds of things we are working on right at my finger tips. And you can see my document camera and smart tablet which I use all day to teach my lessons.
My classroom library with lots of "tree"mendous books. I made the window toppers last year by cutting tons of leaves out of the foamy craft sheets in different shades of green. I hot glued them on the curtain rod and they really dress up the plain old windows.
found here for free.
These white numbered tubs are our book tubs for Daily 5 where the kids keep their books and notebooks. They are ice cube bins from Walmart. I got them 3 years ago when they were 88¢ a piece. I think some other teachers at my school got them for around a $1.00 a piece the last few years. They are great and sturdy, have held up great for the 3 years I have had them. I have never replaced them yet. They aren't too colorful but I don't put much on them because every year after school is over I run them through my dishwasher to clean them up. Then I remark the numbers with Sharpie again.
The skinny shelves above my tubs are for my Daily 5 supplies for Word Work. (Playdough, magnetic letters, letter stamps, etc.)
These last two picts are my wonderful storage cupboards, packed full of lots of goodies. I post WOW words we use for reading and writing on the cabinets. The last view is from my desk the opposite of the first photo taken from that door. I hope you have enjoyed my classroom tour. Thanks Brigid for hosting this linky party.
Best wishes to everyone for a great 2012-2013 school year!!
