Around the Room

Alrighta-Rootie!
Thanks for sharing your ideas about type vs write!

1. So tonight, I WROTE my plans into the template- felt a little more connected- we'll see how that pans out. (I will scan them at school tomorrow)

2. I have decided that I am going to pawn off, unload, share the Decode If I Can (Dykodiphukan) with another teacher (hee hee...) I just can't keep all that stuff when I am trying so hard to condense what I have.

3. I was off today too! And I went to Appt Step # 1 for the veneers!!! whoo-hoo! With all the stuff that has gone on with the girl, I had to reschedule  a few times. :( She is doing really well BTW. Queasy in the a.m though.

Now for a quick look at a few things in my room:


This is the Center Center. Math centers are numbered. Reading Centers are lettered. 1 and A are technology and then B is listening and C is Word Work. (I am toying with converting to Red, Black and White. Dandelions and Dragonflies has a gorgeous room! And everything matches!!) We'll see....
This is our "Tired Word Wall". There are some words in each- and when we think of more synonyms, we add them! When they are writing, if they find a tired word in their writing- they have to substitute it. (Reverse Psychology- everyone wants to "get a new word", which in turn- makes them have to look at them and read  all of them......me so sneaky!)
All of my books are in LibraryThing.com and in these banker boxes. Did this three years ago- makes it very easy to find what I am looking for!
Bought the box at Really Good Stuff- made the labels on PPT.
After I taped up their desks (ha ha) I hot glued these red cups to desks. Cups are only for scissors, yellow pencils, response cards, and dry erase markers. Crayons, glue, and markers are in these caddies. 1 caddy per 2 firsties.
This is where the caddies live when they are not using them. I had my doubts about community crayons but this IS working!!!!!! (bleck! someone needs to dust that thing)
And these are our 'I CAN" statements. Saw a picture of a sign like this on Pinterest....fell in love. The font for the days of the week is Peeps- FUNNY! Green is Reading. Yellow is Math and Red is Unit.
Whew- that was like a set of vacation pictures at the neighbor's house, eh?
But they are not all "separate post" worthy.

Tomorrow is my pre conference, Wednesday is the Eval, Friday sister in law will be in town- she's a hoot! Sure there will be a story there after she leaves!!!!
Have a great week!

  1. Wow--ingenious way to post those standards/I can statements (TN evaluations!!!) I never thought of having the days of the week. Can I copy? My last eval is the last week of January. Unannounced. YIKES

  2. Loved looking at your pictures. Your room is so cute!
    I need to see how you taped their desks up. I'm just curious.
    And I'm amazed that community is working. I've never tried because I'm too afraid.
