Heather's Classroom

A few posts back Juli showed off her classroom. I thought I would show off my room. I don't have an exact theme. I use the Furry Friends by Carson Dellosa.  I am not wild about it cause it does limit my ability to create items for my room.  I have tried to accent my room with black and bright colors.  This is the outside of my room where I hang up work:

This is the bulletin board between my classroom and my officemate's classroom. She thought of this and I thought it was really cute!

This is a view of my classroom library:

I have a Book Hospital that I found on Pinterest. I would love to credit whatever creative teacher created it but I just remember printing it off Pinterest. I created a Books To Be Shelved container where students can return their books before picking out new ones. Once they know the system I let responsible students put the books back in the correct bins.

This is a view of my calendar. I use the schedule flipped cards from Ladybug's Teacher Files. I just love her stuff. I plan on redoing it to use all the subjects she gives in that file.

This is the view of the front of my classroom. The flipped alphabet is from Ladybug's Teacher Files as well.

This is the board I use to manage my reading and math workshop rotations:

This is on my office door in the back of my room:

I found it on Pinterest of course and don't remember what smart teacher to credit with for creating it and pinning it so I could copy it for my own room. I have these sayings in my back wall that I think are cute and remind students (hopefully) to make good choices:

They are the same ones Juli has in her room. Her post will link you to that sight if you are interested in getting some of your own. Below that I have my station tubs that I use to organize all the materials needed for workshops.  I used a file from Ladybug's Teacher Files (of course) to label the bins.

I hope you find my room interesting! I have worked so hard on it and still have so much I want to do. My walls are pretty bare as they await the anchor charts the students I will be creating together.  We studied nouns this last week so I have one lonely little anchor chart up so far:

Hope everyone has a good week!
