Classroom Pictures 2014

AHH! I finally found some time to come on and blog and share! Last week, we had staggered entrance and I had half the kids Thursday and half the kids Friday. Yesterday was our first full day being all together and it went pretty well!

My room is not completely done as I still have a crazy long list of things to do!

Over the summer, the whole school received a new balanced learning environment in their classroom, so lots of rearranging was needed. (you will see the new furniture in the pictures)

The balanced learning environment works in 3 areas. Students can sit and work with peers (ex tables), students can work alone (ex desks) and students can stand and work (standing tables and standing desks). We also have a variety of chairs in our rooms. Some wobbly stools, some rocker chairs and some sturdy normal chairs.

Here’s some pictures of my room!

I teach in an open concept school as well, so you will see in the pics that I have no door and only 2 1/4 walls. lol You will be able to see into other classrooms!

  1. Great new furniture!
    How do you like the open concept? Does it get noisy?

    1. I like it and don't like it...lol it does at times get noisy...we try very hard though to be respectful of other rooms!

  2. Where did you purchase your small guided reading table?

  3. Hello, where did you purchase your small guided reading table?
