Decorating the Classroom - Day 2

Holy Cow! Those are some big desks in my classroom.  They sure take up a lot of space! Not sure what to do with the table on the floor, hoping I can get rid of it?  I think I finally have the room arranged the way I want it.  Still need to get shelving for storage.  I need to get the many boxes out of my garage.

So here is my tip for today.

Tip #3: Arranging the room. Think about what spaces you will need.  For example: Guided Reading area, Whole Group meeting area, Calendar, Library Area for your leveled readers, Centers.  (I do Daily 5 so I do not need areas in my room for centers. I just need a shelf for the word work and writing activities.  The kids pick any spot in the room to work. Love that!) Don't forget to sit in your guided reading chair to see if you have a clear view of all the students while you are working in small group. :)

Today I tackled part of the big, white wall.  I put my CAFE  bulletin board behind my guided reading table so the students will be able to see the list of strategies we will be using during small group.

I also had my helpers with me today. We had to get all the computers up and running so I could get some work done! All favorites have been added.  (Notice the three boys at the computers. They love going to our new school!)

I am really loving this Dots on Turqouise theme!  So Cute!  I finished my Helper Chart and will be making some letters for my word wall. (or maybe find some on Pinterest)
