Classroom....so far!

Well, I'm trying out this BlogPress app I've had forever and have never used, so I hope it all posts smoothly. :)

Here are my classroom photos, as promised! I think that I have been making SO much progress, but whenever I look around the room, it still looks the same--does this happen to anyone else??! Anywho...

View from the entrance by the outside door. This is after I did all of my furniture moving. I was so excited because it was so clean and I thought I was near finished--yeah. Not so much.

Math stations under the Promethean board. Not ideal, but I think it will work and save some space! Also, my "labels to make" list.

Turn in baskets on this cool bookshelf/book display thing that was left in the room for me--this is right in front of my teacher area.

Sigh...I decided to clean out my filing cabinet by dumping everything out so I could sort through it. Worst. Idea. Ever.

Working on library labels in one of the two large group areas!

Word Wall!! I love those little letters! (I'll have to take a close-up for you tomorrow.)

My favorite thing so far--my Daily 5 management chart. Looooove how it turned out!!

My next favorite thing--my calendar area! It's obviously not finished. (By the way, this board is on the wall in the area where I was doing my library labels in one of the earlier photos.)

Job chart! This is right next to the outside door. This is what I started right before I left for the day. The leaves aren't stapled yet so that's why they look all funky. ;)

And this is my birthday board! I'm excited to get the kids' photos up there!

Tune in tomorrow to see MORE progress! :)

  6. Looks great!! I love your math station bins! I've been busy in my room, but it looks like a mess! I am in the middle of labeling my entire library so there are books everywhere! Today I crafted! I need to post pictures f all of my crafts! I thought of you though when I made the bookmarks in my math journals!


    1. OMG, the library was a NIGHTMARE to do and I'm still not really finished with it! I hope you are finished with your room by now! And YAY for math journal bookmarks!!!!!!!
