Classroom Reveal 2014-15!

I am so excited to share with you pictures of my new teaching space! I love it and I think my students will too! So here's my 2nd grade classroom all ready for those little ones to show up...
This is the view from the doorway looking into the room. I love all the windows but the lighting made it hard to get a good photo with my little camera. The frames in between the windows are my class rules. The tubs in the cubbies are for reading and math centers.

 Another view of the back of the room. I love having the natural light!

 Writing center! Under the clock is our Daily 5 rotation chart.

 Small group area! Space on either side of the white board is reserved for anchor charts.

 Another view of the small group area.

Word wall - the plastic drawers underneath hold word work activities.

 Student book boxes, books with characters on top of the cubbies.

My desk and storage area (ignore the mess on the shelf behind my desk - still trying to organize some things!

 Classroom library with CAFE board!

 Love this space! I think my students are going to do a lot of reading this year!
 One more view of the library!

View from the back of the room facing the board. I am so excited about the gutter book shelf under the board - it's full of back to school books!

Calendar on the front board.

I am so excited to welcome my 13 students and their families into this classroom on Monday for Back to School Night. School starts next Wednesday. I am spending the last few days putting together first week plans. I will be back early next week to share them with you!

Head on over to Swimming Into Second Grade to see more classrooms! Love checking out how other teachers set up their rooms!

  10. Absolutely adorable - color coordinated right down to the tubs. Great job - I know it takes a lot of work. Do you usually only have 13 students - lucky you - I had 24 last year.

  15. WOW AMY! As always, I LOVE your room. I especially love your reading/CAFE area. That little ledge beneath the black board (or black bulletin board) which holds books is so cool. Was that already there? I've never seen one before. What awesome windows. I am so excited to follow your year.

  16. I love the shelves you're using in your classroom library! Did you buy those? If so, I'd love to know where you got them.
