I’m kinda sorta in LOVE with my door display this year! I printed my Melonheadz characters in poster size, taped them together, then laminated to make them large. I’ve gotten a lot of complements on them. EEKK!
I don’t have room for student mailboxes in my classroom. I never have. I use something called a “pick up folder.” I have hanging files in a crate and it works perfectly. You can read all about how I use this here.
Here is my desk area.
I used some of my favorite clip art to decorate this year.
I moved this small bookshelf next to my desk. I’m going to place seasonal books there. I had planned on painting it this summer and that obviously didn’t happen.
This is what the front of my room looks like. You can get the number posters here, the alphabet line here (these are actually my word wall headers turned alphabet line), and my classroom rules FREEBIE here. I bought my chevron rug from Wal-Mart online last year.
I’m really loving my classroom library. In the past, I’ve organized my books by AR level. This year I decided to switch to genres. You can get the labels here from Owl in a Vowel Tree.
I don’t have a ton of space so I bought these crates from Wal-Mart and zip tied them together. I still have a few basest to label. There is also a larger shelf to the left of the crates that holds all of my fiction books. You can see it in the larger picture above.
My entire back wall is floor to ceiling shelves except for right here where my backpack hooks are.
All of my crayons are sorted into tubs. This is the fourth year I have done this and I absolutely love it. No more kids digging through a big tub trying to find the color they need. You can get the labels as a freebie here.
This cabinet is right by my door. The pocket chart hold synonym sticks for writing. Last year I had these as a large bulletin board called “fry flat words” and they were in french fry containers. I don’t know what to call them this year. Suggestions????
