It has been a year since I lasted posted but I am going to do my best to start blogging again.
We started school this Monday, we have had a great week getting to know each other and learning the expectations of our classroom.
I got rid of my teacher desk and I use the kidney table for my work space and small groups.
I have been working in my room the last couple of days and it's almost ready for the children. Here are a few pictures of things I have finished.
Here are my book boxes for daily five.
Here is my library and book baskets. I spent a lot of time leveling all my books using scholastic.com, you put the name of the book in and it gives you the level. I then attached stickers to every book and put them in the appropriate boxes. Each level has an ocean animal to help the children and I be able to see that the books are put back in the correct spot.
I will use this spot for my daily five posters like EEKK, and I PICK.
I changed my curtain in the front and made one out of ribbons.
We have been working in math on story problems. To finish our unit the children made up the story problems in groups then I switched their papers and they had to solve the other groups problem. When they were finished I let them come up to the board and show everyone how they solved the problems.
