This is the view you get when you first walk through the door.
Here is my whole group teaching area.
Here is my calendar wall (my math work station tubs are numbered and ready to go on the shelf below).
Here is my classroom library-it is my favorite part of the room!
Here is a close-up of one of the library shelves.
On top of this shelf is the leveled section of my library.
I plan to read the class many stories from this comfy green chair I got at Target.
Here is my bulletin board with my lovely tissue paper flowers hanging above.
Here is the writing center.
Here is the alphabet center.
Here is the drama center-so many puppets!
Here is my art easel and my sand table (which is full of play-doh activities right now).
Here is the housekeeping center.
Here is the listening center.
Here is the science center.
Here is the pocket chart center.
Here is the blocks center (later in the year the big book center will be here on the rug).
Here is where I keep my word work activities.
Here is my guided reading table.
Looks like the kids will have a great view of the playground as I am trying to teach them!
Right next to my guided reading table is my "teacher area" to help keep me organized!
Here is a view from the back of the room.
You can see my 4 student tables and then past them are my cubbies against the side wall.
I have a few more pictures I'll have to post later in the week-but right now I'm off to prepare my plans for the first day of school! Hopefully everything goes smoothly tomorrow-I'm getting a little nervous since I have 21 students this year and I've never had so many before (I know lots of you bloggers have even more students than that-so I'll just be thankful I only have 21!).
Several bloggers are having classroom photo linky parties. Head on over to "Pocket Full of Kinders", "Thoughts of a Third Grade Teacher", and "Teaching Blog Addict" to link up and check out all the neat classroom pics!
