Let me preface by saying that 1. our school is open concept, so think no walls and 2. I took the pics with my iphone quickly so they may not be the best quality:
Welcome to 2nd grade! I will be teaching Reading and Social Studies to 3 classes, so you may see a lot of green, blue and pink and this is because I am color coding my classes.
My front wall which is kind of hard to see from this picture says "The more that you read, the more things that you know. The more that you know, the more places you go." Thank you Dr. Seuss! I also have the yellow brick road of retelling on the right side (it worked so well with my summer camp classes that I used velcro to place it on the wall for easy use with my class). Thank you pinterest!had a great idea this year to put up clothes pins to hold those anchor charts, so I copied her. I placed them far enough apart to accommodate a sheet of chart paper and can fit up 12 at a time.
placing a piece of notebook scrapbook paper in a frame with "to do" at the top to replace sticky notes and 2- labeling my drawers "to grade, to copy, to file" to avoid piles of papers without a home.
a jar with highlighters next to the turn in tray that says "WAIT! Did you remember to write your name?"
