I have been working away in my classroom little by little throughout the summer. I have a very small room, so I try to get the most from my space. Here are some "work in progress" pictures I took today. I took these pictures on my phone, so they are not the best quality. I will post better quality pictures when my room is complete.
This is the view from the doorway.
The first section of the bulletin board is my calendar area. Then I have pocket charts for vocabulary. The bins and storage underneath are for my math and literacy centers.
Here, I have my "Wow Words" board where we will post interesting words to use in our writing.
I spent a lot of time this summer sorting and organizing my books.
I am still hunting for matching baskets for this bookcase.
I purchased the ones on there now last year from the
dollar spot at Target.
This is our gathering area and my CAFE Menu.
I made the crate seats last year and my kids loved them!
Here is a look at the mess I still need to organize.
I have one more week before we officially go back for preplanning. I hope to work on some centers at home. I promised Lloyd I would stay away from my classroom during my last week of summer.
We will see how that goes...
