Ready it not, here school comes.... Kids don't start until Monday, and I think I'm actually ready. I shared some pictures of my new classroom earlier in the summer, but it is much more completed now. I have a counseling space in the back of the room with 4 bean bag chairs, a rug, lamps, and a round table for lunch groups. For my classes, I am using tables, rather than desks, to create a more open and inviting atmosphere. On my bulletin boards I have a tree with the 7 Habits, Monster Manners, and inpriational quotes from Second Grade Shinanigans and Sweet Blessings. I labeled each spot at the table with a 7 habits name plate and a number from Teachers Pay Teachers since I will be having students from every classroom using the tables. Students will receive an assigned seat using a number which will hopefully help with classroom management. I have also included some pictures of bulletin boards a created around the school. I borrowed the ideas for these boards from here and here.
