Hey friends, I am knee deep in back to school over here in Georgia. We are on our second week of school and going strong! I snapped a few pictures after the second day of school to share with you!
This picture is of my library area and my marker board easel where I teach my mini-lessons. I bought the Chevron rug from a local carpet store that sells rugs for awesome prices! The library baskets came from Really Good Stuff and are on their fifth year!
Close up of my library. Love my framed subway art from Second Grade Shenanigans!
Here is my guided reading/small group area with my chevron crate seats…love these! This is my first year using them and the extra storage is awesome.
Here is the counter beside my small group table. The four bins in the back are for guided reading supplies. The red, yellow, and blue baskets are for copy, file and grade. The red and green baskets are for Notes to the Teacher and Turn In. And I have some chevron paper covered cans for sharpened and unsharpened pencils.
Here is another view of my guided reading table and counter area.
This is my computer area and then a chalkboard table which I will use as a writing table (I plan to fill the baskets with writing supplies) and for math. The kids will actually work out their math problems on the top with chalk! Fun!
This is just a view of the front of the room with my smartboard, table points, jobs, and a few other things.
This is a view from the library area.
View from my desk.The rainbow carpet is where we have community and where the students sit during mini-lessons. The rug was a donorschoose project and is from Lakeshore.
Another view from my desk. The black bookshelf houses our writing reference books and the paper for pre-writing and drafts.
Here are two of favorite purchases from Etsy! Chevron covered magnet boards! LOVE! One that hangs on the wall and one that sits on my desk.
This is where we keep our book bins. I have my picture books for read alouds under the curtains (which my fiance sewed for me…well he ironed on the no-sew stuff!) Behind the curtains are where I store my read alouds.
Here are my READ letters on a white shelf that will eventually house our NOOKS (I will blog about those later!
Since I only have a table for a desk, I had to get creative with storing supplies. I just love this system! Everything has a place!
Here is where we write the titles and genres of the books that we read as a class.
Here is where I store my math games/task cards for each domain. The bag contains my clickers which I need to learn to use ASAP! You can read more about how I organize my math centers by clicking here.
With 30 kids I had to get creative with seating arrangements to still have reading areas and my community area with such a small room. That is why I have 3 large groups of 10.
I would love to hear some ideas that you have for keeping small rooms or just rooms with large class sizes organized! I hope you enjoyed my classroom tour in pictures. Click on the image to check out some other classroom tours!
