Yesterday was my first day with my new group of Cubs! I finally finished my room and I am excited to share the final product with you. In the past, I have done Bears, Jungle, and Fairy Tales. This year I did not do a theme. I chose to focus on color and making my room as inviting as possible. I think I accomplished that goal.
This is the view from my teacher area. My whole group teaching area is in front of a giant bookcase. You can also see my technology cart. I love the technology, hate the cart.
Back of my room.
Another view of the back of my room and computer area. My class library is currently in front of the big pink curtain. Not ideal but it is a work in progress.
Close up of my writing bins and "What can I write about?" bulletin board. The basket will be used for math stations.
This is where I will display student work.
Here is where my differentiated reading centers go.
Storage wardrobes and my sensory table. My plans are to put a tree in the big open space above the sensory table.
Small group/teacher area. The bright paper on the wall just above the floor is where my sight words go. Above the word wall is my Smart Board (love). The bulletin board is my Data Wall. We are all required to have a data wall and display our student growth.
Close up of my data wall. Watch Me GLOW! I made the pom poms and found the "glowworms" at Dollar Tree. The Neon lines are really shoelaces. The students will use clothes pins with their class number on them to track their growth.
So that's a peak into my room. I love the bright colors and had fun putting it all together.
