This is the view from my front door. I have my kiddos in groups of 4 and 5. I like to use Kagan activities so that helps. I also have a pretty small room and groups makes it a little bigger. (at least it feels that way)
My "desk", small group area, guided reading group, catch all.....my space:)
Part of my library and reading area. The bins in the cubbies hold chapter books.
More of my library. I have two other book cases as well:) Love my books!!
I <3 my book bunting! It hangs over the reading area. I made it from laminated book covers and polka dot ribbon.
My computer area and above that my "sounds" word wall. (I can't remember where I got the sounds cards:( It was from one of you wonderful bloggers:) )
My Daily 5 Check In area.
I tried to combine pics. This is my CAFE board and Daily 5 board (which once I get the training done, will be daily 3.)
The kids book luggage, all full of Just Right books and waiting for my kiddos to come in again in the morning:)
Just added this this week. We are doing The Book Whisperer in my classroom....start every morning with reading, 40 book challenge, genre requirements...anywho, the kids are keeping track of the books they read and the genres in their Data Notebooks (7 Habits) but I also wanted to have a way displayed...as much as I LOVE the ribbon things I have seen on Pinterest...I just don't have the space so, did this instead. Once a student finishes a book, they fill out a notecard with the title, author, and their name. Then I punch a hole and put it on a ring. I have big pins holding the rings. Hopefully at some point they will be too heavy to hang:) Until the, they are displayed here:)
Hope you enjoyed the room tour Where is all Goes Down:))
