My favorite part of every year are the first couple weeks of school. I LOVE meeting the news students, decorating my room, starting a fresh planbook, and taking in the dynamic and buzzing atmosphere around me.
My room this year is very similar to my room last year, just with a few minor tweaks. Read on to check it out!
Looking at my guided small group section, and my CARES board.
A peek at the bookshelf which holds the kids' folder bins and notebook boxes.
Moving over to the front of the room! You can see the Hopes & Dreams board here, all ready for the students' aspirations!
The front of the room! That dinky rug in front is driving me crazy- I have a big one coming soon from Overstock!
Classroom jobs and birthdays!
Supply caddies on the sink area.
MY NEWEST OBESSION. This cart gets wheeled outside my door everyday. The kids turn in their homework, important papers, and pick up their homework here. This ensures that they never forget to pick something up in the morning, since I stand at the door and can remind them.
If you're interested in picking up the cart, it was fairly cheap (less than $100, and shipped for free with Prime!) on Amazon. It's called the Indoor or Outdoor Folding, Metal, Rolling Serving Cart, and it comes in lots of different colors to match your classroom!
What colors or themes are you doing for your classroom this year? How are you feeling about the new school year?
