Hi everyone! Now that I finally feel like I have rested up from the weekend, I would like to share some pictures that I took of my second grade classroom. I apologize in advance for the picture quality–I took all of the pictures with my iPhone before school started a couple of weeks ago. I have been so busy in the last couple of weeks that this literally feels like the first time that I actually have time to write a blog post. I have missed you guys, so I included some FREE things for you guys in this post so make sure that you read the whole post :)!
I have to tell ya–I’m loving my second graders! They are so sweet! We are starting to get into a routine and I am so looking forward to the rest of the year with them!
This pic was taken from the front door where students enter.
This picture is from the back of the room. The boards are pretty much bare to save space for anchor charts that I will make with my kiddos.
This is the photo from the back door. My word wall is located on the cabinet doors.
Here is a close-up of the word wall cards.
Here is my classroom library.
I added some tissue paper pom-poms to my library area for a 3-D effect.
ABC cards that I made to coordinate with the colors in the classroom. I loved how they turned out!
Standards posters for the back cabinets. I added ribbon for some extra “cuteness”.
As many of you know, I spent most of the summer reading about the Daily 5 and I am planning on implementing many of these strategies in my classroom this year. I have to tell you that I really contemplated how I wanted to set-up my classroom library. I ended up purchasing bins from Dollar Tree and purchased Reagan Tunstall’s Classroom Library bin pack from Teachers pay Teachers. This was a total time saver for me! I still have to go through and label all of the AR levels, but my kiddos have done a great job keeping everything clean and organized. If you are interested in checking out this product, then check out my pin on Pinterest.
The following items are from my TpT store:
Now on to some FREE items!
There is one more FREEBIE because I think you guys are awesome :).
I hope that you guys have a great week!
