Classroom Reveal #2getherwearebetter
It took me a while (well…more than a while) but I managed to find time, sort out my photos, delete most of them and choose a few to show my beautiful yet very small classroom!
First things first though, a big thank you to these amazing and helpful fellow teachers/bloggers Ashley Schroeder from Schroeder Shenanigans in 2nd and Angie Olson from Lucky Little Learners who host this #2getherwearebetter linky party. Love, love, love both their shops and work!
So, I’m a teacher in a very small school, with small classrooms and few students but we are a very happy and loving community! Every summer my mind is bursting with ideas of how to decorate my classroom and make it a space where learning will flourish and kids will be happy to go to every day!
To start with here is a small glimpse of my classroom
As you can see it’s a small, cute classroom. There is a big table in the middle and students sit around it. I don't have my own desk and I sit at the head of the table...much like a family dinner. I usually have 10 students which gives me the chance to work very closely with them and they can interact much easier with each other and make friends! Working the room can be a bit crowded but we still enjoy it!
I wanted this year-more than any other year- to make my kids feel they belong! I wanted them to feel loved, safe and accepted! I feel this saying covers everything I wanted and I simply love it!
On the left we have our Word Walls and on the opposite wall we have our Grammar Wall! I love our walls and how my students enjoy exploring every new thing I pin there.
On the corner we have our Chill Out space! I love how our palm tree came out especially since it is my students’ work! Here my kids have the chance to read a story, solve a crossword, draw, color and do extra work when they have finished early or when…they have forgotten how to use their inside voice!
My favorite part is the behavior charts and our brag tags! I absolutely L O V E encouraging my students and rewarding them for their small or big successes!
The behavior chart as well as the Student Of the Month cards are part of my Classroom Decorations and Labels resource. You can find my Brag Tags on my shop. I find brag tags one of the best and most effective classroom management tools!
I love my home away from home and if I weren’t such a bad photographer I would have more photos for you, but I’m working on my skills!
I hope you all have a wonderful year, full of the cutest, little laughters and most loving hugs!
