I’m back with a few more photos of my Hollywood-themed classroom!
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 corner showing some of my leveled books as well as math manipulatives.
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!
Students desks as they appeared on visitation day.
More beanie babies – these are for reading and comprehension strategies.
A close up of the cubbies. I ADORE my baskets of books. Really Good Stuff has some REALLY GOOD STUFF!
- Leveled books, blocks and toys for indoor recess and a big, beautiful bulletin board!
