Did you see the TWO giveaways I'm running on my blog right now?
Click either pic to find out how you can win this...
Or for of these magnetic pockets for your board...
First up today... more classroom pictures!!!
First... here's my finished writing center. I really love it! I have two crate seats for the kids to sit on at the little desk and the shelf next to it is full of resources for writing. Our first writing unit is on opinion writing, so I have the posters from my Opinions: Order Up! unit displayed on the board at the center. You can find my Narrative pack on TpT or as part of the amazing deal currently going on at Educents!
Here's the view from behind my table. I went desk free last year and LOVE it! My "desk" is the table where I meet with small groups.
And speaking of the table where I meet with small groups the picture above is a week old so... check out what I put on that table on Monday... I LOVE it!!!
See the blue and green circles? They are actually wall stickers that I put on my table and they are dry erase!!!
I got them on Amazon... click HERE to check them out!!! I know my kiddos will love participating during small group instruction by writing responses on the circles! Another teacher in my building has something similar on her closet doors in all sizes and she (and I think the kids too) writes positive notes on them.
Here's another pocket chart with student spots stuck on with Mod Podge. I am so excited about the whole Mod Podging thing!
Do you have any of these carts? I got mine at Michael's but you can also see them HERE on Amazon. Mine are now all organized and ready to go. I have all of my independent activities for each topic listed in the drawers. The top drawer is for any "Must Do" students have during the week, then the drawer with games for the topic we are covering... then everything else!
Here's the view from the door. Don't mind my stuff on that table!
I also gave my teaching and learning beliefs an updated look. You can read about them HERE. If you don't have yours displayed, I'd encourage you to do it. I jut think it helps me stay true to what I do in my classroom and can answer questions anyone might have about why I do what I do!
And last... I hung this "Welcome Back" banner across the front lobby! You can find it on TpT for just $2!
Now, if you made it though all of that, you deserve a freebie! Just read a little more...
Today I'm sharing my new CAFE board. Usually I always always always write out my CAFE strategy cards, but I decided to type them this year and like how they turned out! Here's a pic of my board with all of the strategies up. I put magnets on the back of each one and will add them to the board as we learn them throughout the year.
You can access them on TpT by clicking the picture below. I would appreciate it if you left feedback too! Thank you!!!!
Stay tuned Friday for my monthly "2nd Friday Fabulous Feedback" linky party!
