Be sure and follow my new blog Life in Fifth Grade to see more pictures of my classroom!
I've been enjoying summer a little too much lately (is that possible?) and haven't done a whole bunch in my classroom, but I have managed to get a couple of tasks completed.
Completed: Our Word Wall
This originally was one big pink board that I was going to use for writing, but I couldn't find a good place for the word wall. So I decided to divide this big board and use it was two things. There isn't a whole lot of room for writing, but we can display a few things on it like an anchor chart for the weekly skill.
Completed: Instagram Door/Board
In my little independent reading area there's a door that leads to the air conditioning unit. I originally thought I would hate this but it creates the nicest humming sound...kinda like a fan. I'm dreaming if I think the room will ever be quiet enough to actually hear the calming sound, but it's nice while it lasts! :)
Anyways, back to the picture. I thought it would be nice to have an area in the classroom to display the pictures we take throughout the year, so I created an Instagram board/door. I found this perfect wrapping paper ($2.50!) at TJ Maxx. I was a little worried about the quality, but it was so easy to work with!
Completed: Spicing up my marker storage
This was the tiniest of projects, but I've been wanting to do this forever.
Completed: The Twitter Board
I took this picture before I added the "today's question". I'll post a question (not every single day) and the class will "tweet" their answers.
Completed: Poms and Table Labeling
I couldn't get a good shot of all the poms. Three are green and three are pink. This took FOREVER, but I feel much more organized now. :)
