Also, let me preface this by saying that I am not a wonderful picture taker, but I think you'll get the idea...
Thanks to Kristen at Ladybug's Teacher Files for the VOICES bulletin board! I am very excited to use it!
Here is our writing table. Soon I will put our Class Journals and Topic Jar on the table. I am trying to keep things minimal, something I have struggled with in the past.
I thought of this idea all on my own! Cute picture frames from Target. I plan to put student writing in them, changing the student writing every Friday. I wish I had enough $$ to purchase a frame for every child, but that would be a lot of money and a lot of picture frames to change!
Here is the other side of our white board where I plan to put our Classroom Expectations and Classroom Voice Levels.
This area will hold all of our "Work on Words" materials. I hope to get some type of bucket to use to keep the different activities organized.
Okay, I think I'll keep it short tonight, but will post tomorrow morning with some more pictures. I don't want to give you too much of a picture overload!
I promised a freebie, so here goes.... RULES for Math Word Problems
RULES is an acronym I was introduced to last year to help students show their best work on math word problems. It worked SO well for my students last year.
U--Use pictures, numbers, and words
L--Label your response
E--write an Equation
S--Sum your answer up in a sentence.
This item will be FREE in my TN shop until Wednesday, July 25. The only thing I ask you to do is give me a shout out on your blog, so that even more people can get this resource for free!!
Have a great night!
