I officially report back to work in two days! I am sooooo not ready!
This is what my room looked like when I went in this morning.
I was freaking out! The room was set up, but I had stuff piled everywhere to put away.
I had put up the bulletin boards the other day when my daughter was there to help.
Where do I begin?
One step at a time - baby steps, that is!
I worked diligently ALL day.
I got a LOT done.
This is my calendar and assignments board. I was hating the fact that there was no map in my classroom. (Can you believe it, a classroom with NO maps!)
I found this great map at Office Max that is sticky backed and removable with a white board surface.
The poster with the red boarder is my calendar math. I made 8 of these posters (one for each group.) The kids will work together to complete the daily activity using dry erase markers. I got 4 different color markers for each group so that I can make sure that everyone is everyone is participating.
That's my Monday Made-It for this week!
The pic below is my Knowledge Nuggets Extra Credit buckets.
Last summer there was a Brain Bubble craze on Pro Teacher, and this was my version.
Sorry for the blurry pic! Common Core standards and my clip chart
(which may have to be moved, but I haven't figured out where yet.)
Book boxes hold each student's folders. Black bin is for supplies.
Dish rack holds reading and writing notebooks and duct tape white boards, and red bucket is for trash.
Bookcase at each table holds textbooks, paper (in the white drawers,) supplies, and the red canvas drawer will hold their towels (to use during independent reading.)
Because of the shift to common core, I had to re-level my entire classroom library, and I have a BIG library. I still have about 500 books at home to finish up!
So this was the view from the door this morning...
Tomorrow's task is to finish up my teacher area and start some lesson planning.
