This is my back wall. It's the biggest white board in the class which is semi annoying that it is in the back, but it's a great place for the agenda, objective and HW.
I can already tell my reading center is going to be a huge motivator. I give them tickets when they do something correct and on Fridays I will draw for who gets to sit in the disk chairs!
Thank you to everyone who donated books! You make my heart full.
This is called: Riley spent too much money so I scrounged to make a READ sign!
I found a version of these SLANT signs on a website that was charging almost $20! I made my own in about 30 seconds. Also ignore my terrible teacher handwriting. Working on it.
My messy desk! But on it are a bunch of birthday presents my coworkers got me. They have only known me for a small amount of time but they were so loving on my birthday, it brought tears to my eyes each time they made my day a little bit more special.
I had to sell my soul for this table. No freaking joke.
Guess how hard it is to take a picture of something laminated when you have ginormous windows??? Haha! These are their exit tickets. Each day I give the students a small paper and they write their name on it and three things they learned that day, two questions they still have an a summary of the day. They then put their paper in the folder of where they feel they are at with the material for the day.
I decided to stick really closely to Kelly Gallagher, basically an English teaching superstar. I love his style. Students need to know there is more than one way to write!
Such a bright way to enter my classroom!
My favorite little board. Last year I had humongous bulletin boards and this year I only have two teeny tiny ones. I'm really grateful...haha
Behind my desk....
This is called "Hi! I just worked a 10 hour day which includes 2 hours on my feet talking. I'm tired. Feed me."
BUT LOOK AT MY NAME ON THE DOOR THO!
Also sorry I had to block out my students name on the door....haha
Anyway! That is my room! Thanks for stoppin bye!
