I still want to organize or change this- or change that... Yet- I know it is time!
Here is a peak at our room:
work center. This is not finished yet! Yikes! I just keep reminding myself that they will not be ready to even use it for a few weeks. I always teach them how to use the paper practice items first.
wait list and passes as well as the clip chart are also here. Hopefully I will be surprised on Monday with a Smartboard hanging there as well! Last week a box arrived with one inside! :-)
This is my favorite wall! I plan to draw names weekly and have students choose to display something on the left bulletin board. The right board is our new word wall. In the middle is our writing center. The walls contain inspirational paintings. On the student desks you will find a folder with an "All about my child" form (you can find it on my TPT), a remind101 sign up, a welcome letter for parents (you can find a copy on my online classroom www.grefirstgrade.weebly.com), mystery reader sign up, volunteer sign up, and finally any district beginning of school forms. The red bags contain a pencil, starburst with the tag- "I'm BURSTING with excitement that you are in my class!" and the back to school magic confetti poem with a tiny bag of confetti.
Right now- my math tubs, fiction and nonfiction library are covered with a massive box containing our new Smartboard! Even though I couldn't take a picture- I am delighted! :-)
I am going to write my next post from my computer so I can add images of our first week of school plans. :-) I am anxious each year and would love to know what other people do! Hopefully you will be inspired or feel more at ease after reading my plans. :-)
Have a wonderful day!
