CLASSROOM DESIGN and MANAGEMENT

This is the view as we enter our classroom. Arranging their desks and their cubbies together has created smoother transitions and more organized areas.  The students are more apt to keep their belongings neat and orderly for quick access in this setting. 

Our Reading Table:  of course it has many uses throughout the day and week.  It is located within our classroom library, which wraps front the right side of the large window over to the right hand side of the wall.  It is labeled by genre with Fountas & Pinell guided reading levels: Click on this to head over to The Book Source


Our entrance into the classroom: check in, lunch menu and count, bathroom passes, fire drill folder, recycling and snack bins, as well as their weekly homework organizer.

A close up of our check in area. The brain bubble idea is compliments of Apple Girl Amber- Brain Bubbles. A fun way for students to practice math, reading and writing with mini curriculum assignments.

Across the back of the classroom is the computer work station as well as an independent work areas for up to 4 students.  The bulletin board areas behind the computer stations can be viewed under reading workshop/writing workshop posts.
