This is the door to the room. Each of my teammates is posting the pennant from the college she attended. My fourth graders should graduate from high school in 2021!
This is the view from the doorway. The cubbies on the wall are the only built in storage. I was slightly (ok, majorly!) freaked out about the lack of shelving. My school provided 3 tall metal bookshelves and 1 smaller one. One of my dear friends came through with the library shelving you see here. Thanks again, Raquel and Ted! This corner houses my classroom library - still a work in progress, but the kids will help with that.
This picture shows the view of the front of the room. You can see my attempts to tone down the orange with turquoise. I love the Paisley on Turquoise line from Creative Teaching Press. The turquoise fabric is sheets from J.C. Penney.
View from the front of the room looking back. There are desks for 26 students - I currently have 25 on my roster. I am trying to pretend the desks are all the same color. (That's not working so well.)
My teacher corner. My desk and document camera are housed here. The black paper on the bulletin board will house the daily objectives.
My small group table. The stools are from Ikea. The alphabet is from Ladybug's Teacher Files. Our class rules and some hand signals are posted on the bulletin board. Hanging next to it is the clip chart. I am teaching language arts to 2 classes and my partner teacher will teach math and science. We made our clip charts out of yardsticks covered with duct tape so they will be portable and can go back and forth between our classes.
Another view of the desk area. The drawer units hold extra supplies.
The large sheet will house my word wall. I am lucky enough to have a mounted lcd projector (how did I teach without that and a document camera?) and 4 student computers in the room.
I hope you enjoyed the classroom tour. Thanks for visiting!
