Classroom Photos

This is the view from the  door.

This is the view from my desk.  The doors in the back are the restrooms.  I haven't set up my carpet area yet.

This is my teacher storage area.  The big wooden storage piece is for math manipulatives.  Our principal had them made for all the teachers at our school.  The clear boxes to the right are math workstations.

Reading File Boxes - I have loved these!  My husband built these for me.  There is a box for each week.  All my files, readers, assessments, and homework is stored in the boxes. 

Small Group Table  

This is the carpet/whole group area.  Green plastic drawers- copy cards for SF Reading Street.  Pink boxes- SF reading centers.  Small green baskets- nonfiction & leveled books.

My messy desk!

Computer Area- can't see computers right now.  They are behind the dry erase boards.  The canopy is my DVD center.  I use this with HeidiSongs DVD's and Preschool Prep's DVD's.

Bargains from Dollar General!

New stuff from CTP!

DIBELS Workjobs Part I

These are based on the same principle as Kim Adsit's math workjobs.  Students will sort sound cards by the beginning sound.  They will put like sounds together - only 1 sound per card. 


I will start with A - E (SF Reading Street introduces A-E the first week.) I will gradually add more sound cards when the student is proficient. 

Here is a close up view.

Materials:  workmats & sound cards.  Each student has their own set of workmats and sound cards.

Shop Till You Drop

I found these poster markers tonight at Dollar General.  I don't know if they will work as well as the markers Deanna Jump showed on her blog or not.  $2.00 a pack!

I love the new center packet by Jump & Lee. It is just what I was looking for - perfect! Thanks! I hope Jump & Lee continue to make these each month.

When I got home last night, there was a box at the door.  I was so excited!  Finally, I can finish my DIBELS workjobs.  Planning on going to school tomorrow to work on workjobs.

Work Board Icons

I have been working on a new work board for next year.   I wanted something simple to use with our reading series - SF Reading Street.  Since my room is a jungle theme, I decided to use animals for groups (tables.)  I am going to use Velcro to attach the animals to the tables.  Click on the picture for icons.

These are the larger icons that I use in my pocket chart.  Click on the picture to download.
