Last Tuesday I was in a different building for a meeting and couldn't focus on the meeting for a while, because I was busy looking around and taking notes.
You have been waiting long enough. Here are some recent pictures of our class. (Picture caption is under the picture.)
Standing at the doorway looking right.
Standing at the doorway looking left.
Now pictures from the center of the room.
Looking back toward the door. This is a reading nook, my laptop that is hooked to the SmartBoard, and the very outdated Elmo (the Elmo in my room last year was brand new, this is brand old).
Swinging to the right just past the SmartBoard is some CAFE information, our daily schedule, missing student pizza pan, School Family jobs and a chair for me to sit in to read or teach while they are sitting with me.
The other corner, more books, another table to work at, cupboards filled with math and LA resources that don't get left out, our friends and family board (children are allowed/encouraged to bring in a picture of their special family so we can get to know them as well), the mountain goat head that comes with the room, mailboxes and just off the picture is the sink/water fountain and then the classroom door.
Now we are back to the beginning.
I am linking up with some bloggers who are hosting picture linky parties. Yeah, go check them out, There are some fascinating rooms to look at. remember your paper and pen!
