I’ve finally finished setting up most of my classroom. After the new evaluation training today, I hope to plan the first day of school. We only have a half day of school the first day so the day really flies.
My welcome board – I made a surfboard for each child out of scrapbook paper and placed their name on the edge. I really love how my palm trees turned out. I’m a big fan of fabric on bulletin boards. I think it makes the boards look so much sharper and it lasts so much longer than paper.
Since I rarely use my whiteboard because I have an Activboard, I thought that would be a good place to place the student friendly standards for the day.
Sorry for the blurry picture. Our classroom lights are so bright that it’s hard to take a good picture. This is a picture of my leveled library and series books. I have themed books and individual book boxes on other bookshelves.
My crate seats have been a big hit with other teachers and the students that have seen them. I placed extra books that I can’t fit in my library within the crates to keep them from moving all over the place.
