|This is the shelf I am using for my "self-service" math supplies. I want it facing into the room so students can access it easily.|
|Here's our "What's Happening" wall . . . I may need to tweak it a little, but it has our specials schedule, our lunch menu, our job chart, our birthday graph, and our "questions, comments, and concerns" mailbox.|
|Here's where I posted my mini posters (only 4 of the 8 shown) about becoming independent readers. I can take them down as needed to highlight for minilessons. These windows are right in my reading area.|
Today I am home doing some volunteer work for my son's band and dealing with some other "home stuff", but I'll tackle some more tomorrow. For those of you back in your classrooms--I hope your first days/weeks are going well. For those of you who are organized and feeling good about your progress, please refrain from judging me. For those of you who can relate, crack open a can of soda and grab a bag of chips and know you are NOT alone.
Have a wonderful day!
