There’s a fun Linky Party over at Always First Grade. I LOVE seeing what other classrooms look like so this is such a great idea. Here are some pictures of my classroom.
This is my carpet area. I LOVE my carpet. This is where we meet to do calendar, read books, and do whole group instruction for reading.
Speaking of calendar…this is my brand new calendar. I seriously just got it last week. They decided they wanted all the 1st grade classrooms in our corporation to have the same calendar so they bought these for us. It’s great! It has everything you would need including a daily Math problem that my students are just eating up. They love them! Gotta love that 🙂
My focus wall is over in my calendar area. We are required to have a focus wall in our classroom. Some of them are really elaborate, but I thought this was simple and useful. Each morning during calendar time, we review our weekly skills in all subject areas. Then at the end of the week, I just change out the sentence strips.
Here is my small group table. I pull over small groups to work on reading and math. I have some wall space behind this table that I use for anchor charts.
Speaking of anchor charts, these are two of my favorites. Our full time substitutes made these for everyone last year. I think they are great!
Here is my classroom library. I NEED to desperately relabel my bins. They have fallen off or been destroyed. I am doing that this weekend 😉
Here is another view of my reading area. I used to call it the Reading Beach and I had a plastic pool full of books. But, I just didn’t have space in this room. It’s a very odd layout.
This is the entrance to my room. We do not have doors so I wanted something fun and inviting. I put up this blue bulletin board paper and went with an ocean theme.
Just some more views.
I love this schedule I bought last year from Really Good Stuff. I had two autistic children last year and it was really beneficial to them to have a visual.
My sink area.
I love having these individual cubbies in my room. They are SO convenient!
Here is a view from the back of the room. (Shout out to The Inspired Apple for the Adjective bulletin board).
Another view from the back of the room.
Here is my behavior clip chart that I keep on the front of the board.
Hope you enjoyed the tour of my room. Can’t wait to see yours!!
