Well the school year started for me a week and half ago. That's the cause for my lack of blogging. I can't believe I've been away from it so much the past few weeks.. I love it and miss it! I have been checking out the great classrooms and ideas that others are posting, however.
I'm finally posting photos of my room. I changed some furniture around to create a library area and now have a classroom "frog" theme. It's nice to have some new things going on (excuse the ladder, I was still setting up).
Here is what my calendar wall looks like:
I love my library! Very happy with the way books are organized. I just went down today and took in my book boxes so we can start Read to Self tomorrow and get rolling on the Daily 5.
I started Math Work Stations last week. So far they contain pattern blocks, linker cubes, and tangrams. Just things kids can do independently without much explanation. I like the way this turned out. The numbers come from Lettering Delights.
So far the math work stations are going well. I'm pulling my first group during that time tomorrow so I can help them work on number recognition. I plan for this to be a time for some math intervention.
Thanks to everyone for the inspiration to start Math Work Stations and Daily 5. I hope to post photos of some projects very soon. Meanwhile happy blogging! Wishing everyone a great start to the year!
YOU'RE INVITED TO OUR PROGRAM!
