Happy Monday!! My Monday Made-It today is my classroom design for the year. My first thoughts about my classroom design came from Melanie at Schoolgirl Style. She has so many awesome ideas that I used to help me in my planning. The book, Classroom Spaces That Work, helped me to really analyze my classroom and the message it sends to students. As you journey through my photos, you'll see the projects that I've posted throughout the summer. If you have any questions, please ask!!
Conscious Discipline. I also used fabric to cover two tables in my room. This helps hide the storage that goes under the tables.
You may notice that I do not have a word wall board up. After lots of thinking, I've decided that I am going to have my students use individual word walls at their desk. They will have a special folder for them and will write in the new words each week. There will also be room to add in math vocab when necessary.
Obviously I'm not finished!!! I will try to get more pictures taken when I'm totally done. I'm trying lots of new ideas this year and I can't wait to see how they work out. I'm feeling pretty positive about the whole package! School starts with meetings next Monday. Wish me luck:)
