Whew! Y'all, I'm tired! I worked for about 4 hours in my classroom today and got soooo much done! By the time I left, everything was put up and desks were cleared. HUGE accomplishment for the day! I still have a couple of boards left to put up and some more organization to do, not to mention the massive number of wires to untangle and reattach to my computers, but all in all I'd say I'm making progress!
Accomplished: Math Focus Board
I'm hoping this works as well as my reading focus board. We use Saxon Math so everyday there's a new skill. I plan to type up all the skills so they'll be ready to be displayed weekly. I think this will be good because now the kids will know what the new skill is and what the week holds. It'll also let them know when a test in coming up (the program gives a test every 5 lessons). We don't do a lesson on Fridays, but it didn't look right with just the 4 days of the week to me. :) We do free math centers on Fridays, so I can put that on the Friday section.
Accomplished: The title of my Schema Board
Accomplished: My favorite little color crayons displayed!
I bought these my first year teaching and they are still my favorite thing ever! I just love these! :)
Accomplished: Drumroll, please!......the tops of the student desks CLEARED!!!
It's almost looking like it's ready for students! Almost.
See the messy, ugly, black wires?? I absolutely HATE wires! But the front of the room is coming together, little by little.
