Classroom Progress

Slowly, but surely, my classroom is coming together!  Here's what it looks like right now:

I need to make new FACE (CAFE) headers.

Math stations and pocket chart for rotation.
I do calendar on my smart board but I  like to have one visible all day.  Need to find the missing numbers!
Still a lot of stuff to put away!
The biggest job remaining is to organize my books.  I ordered a set of new shelves that haven't arrived yet for my classroom library.  Then I need to figure out what I am going to do with all of my mentor texts.

I had hoped to have a project to share for Made it Monday, but other than cut some bulletin board letters for myself and my husband (he's a PE teacher in another district) I didn't get any crafting done.  I did make a number book for my team to use during the first few weeks of school.  I had seen several books on different blogs but the ones that covered the right skills didn't have the correct handwriting.  So I tried making my own!  I don't think it turned out too bad!  Click the caption if you would like a copy.

Tomorrow's tasks:  Finish FACE board and get started on classroom library.

    1. Thanks! I think the word wall is my favorite thing so far!

  2. Hi Carol,
    Your room looks great! I agree about the SAMRTboard calendar--it is nice to have one up all of the time. The kids love flipping the days over. :)
