My Classroom {Part 1}

Welcome to my room!

I took these pictures after registration today, so parts of my room are a little out of sorts.

My computer area is back here with the word wall, which I moved from the other side of the room.  I put the websites they may visit in the blue pocket chart.  My student mailboxes are back here along with all of my paper.

My student cubbies are in the back corner.  I keep my comprehension packets, word work packets, and workbooks back here in the baskets.  The baskets are from the Dollar Tree.

I'm sure you've seen these cute transportation clip charts on Pinterest.  I made my own to go with our bus schedule.  

This is my phonics board where I will post my weekly phonics anchor charts.  My leveled readers are in the baskets.  The wire shelf is wrapped in a plastic tablecloth from Walmart.  I just doubled up the tablecloth, and then scrunched as I went along the top with hot glue.  Super easy and cheap!

The chair!  I am sooo excited about it!  I got the idea from this pin.  The pillow is from Hobby Lobby.

My desk area is up front in the corner.

I keep all of my stations in these baskets for each group to just grab.  It works for me since we don't have enough space in our rooms for specified center areas.  The baskets are on top are for my assistant. They're labeled to be laminated, copied, or filed.  That way I don't have to stop teaching to let her know what I need done.

This is what I had waiting on the little ones' desk when they came in.  I got the to-do list idea from Cara Carroll.  The parents filled out a little transportation form.  All of the other paperwork is in their OWL folder.  

I always make extras at the beginning of the year for new students who come in.  I also put a name plate in there just to be prepared.

I have students sort their own supplies.  {I learned that the hard way my first year!}  I have a list of what goes where on their desk.  But you always have those who can't read it very well.  So, I made this anchor chart for what is to go in their desks.  They sort everything else at the front of the room into labeled baskets and bins.  

That is it for now!  I have reached picture overload.  I will share more soon!  Have a fantastic weekend!!!
