Here is a closer look at things I love in my classroom.
I started using these shelves in first grade in each group of desks. I just love how easy it is to have the students book boxes and other things they need next to them, saves time. I zip-tie them to together and the table so they stay put.
We always make a social contract in our school, this year I used the "Rainbow Fish" and we talked about how we were going to treat each other. They then made a fish and wrote how they would behave this year.
Here is our math area.
Since I teach dual language we do a self generated alphabet.
This is our reading graph to chart the children's reading level and how much they improve though out the year.
So very excited to start another year of school, this will be my eleventh year. I am also switching grade levels, I am going back to kindergarten but I'll be doing two way dual language which is brand new for me. I am very much looking forward to the new challenge and hope to blog more this year.
Here are a few pictures from my room before school starts, it's not completely finished but it's getting there.
