Setting up the classroom
Welcome back to school! I hope everyone had a great summer.
I wanted to share the new things in my classroom with our followers. I have a split 1/2 class this year, which means I have quite a few students from last year coming back into my room. So I commandeered my children and their friends and girlfriends/boyfriends to come and help. It turned out fantastic. I get so excited each year with a fresh new start but this one feels the best so far.
I tried to create separate areas, and independent activities throughout the classroom, because there will be times when I need students to work independently when I am working with the opposite grade.
Here is what it looks like, starting with the outside of my classroom and door.
Here is inside the classroom.
My daughter Jocelyn felt that I needed a desk fairy this year.
This is how her little desk fairy turned out.
I should have taken a close up. I will take one this weekend and post it with the new writing centre I just finished tonight.
I would like to shout out a thank you to all the wonderful people who helped with my room, including my friends two sweet children,
Abbey and Ella!
Hope everyone is having a good start to the new year.
