New Room

Well, this is my fifth year as a reading teacher and I just finished settling into my 3rd room. It was a hard switch since I loved my cozy little room that I've had the past two years. My new room is large but I'm sharing it with another reading teacher. The best perk so far is that we have a full size refrigerator and extra cupboard space so I won't have to make lunches this year. I can just keep my lunch supplies right at school. We have a divider up between our two sections so I feel like it's my own room but I'm still concerned about the noise. I'll just have to wait and see how it goes....

Anyway, I thought I'd show a few pictures of the new set up.
Time for a color change-I went all black.

Science Books-animals, weather, plants....

Once students begin these will be filled with baggies containing books and a book log.

The book rack holds books that go with the modules being used in the classroom.

A few cozy reading spots.

A perk-having enough room to set out supplies!

Work table-I gave up my kidney table for this one.

Special markers will be used to add favorite quotes from books to my desk.

A close up view of a book basket-students designed them a year ago.

I have a CAFE board for each reading group

Got myself organized last June-how long will it last??

Personal photos by my desk helps keep me grounded

Happy New Year!
