Hollywood Revisited

I’m back with a few more photos of my Hollywood-themed classroom!Image

Several years ago, some brilliant person out there in cyberspace came up with the idea of using beanie babies to help teach reading strategies.  I believe the original website is now defunct, but you’ll find variations on this idea out there.  I extended the idea to cover elaboration in writing too!

Here’s a photo of the front of my desk; behind it you can see the gorgeous cubby area!

A view from my classroom door. Another bulletin board and my pride and joy – my AIR CONDITIONER!

A bit further to the left – this is my small group area. The closet doors have my objectives and Core Standards on them. The pockets are adhesive and I just slip the papers inside!

More beanie babies - these are for reading and comprehension strategies.
