Classroom Reveal 2014-2015

One of my favorite things to do is to look at photos of classrooms. So, I thought I'd share my classroom photos with all of you. I have a small classroom with no built in furniture, so everything in there is out in the open. There's just no where to hide anything! LOL!

I don't have a classroom theme. I never had one in all the years I've been teaching. I just like bright colors and organization.

Here is the view from the door.

Here you see the writer's notebook station on the left and the sight word station on the right.

I always display some transition words for the children to use when they are writing.

My students don't necessarily complete their work at this table, though. They are allowed to go anywhere in the room to work during station time.

This is my phonics station.
You can find the colored blends posters here.

This is my work on writing station.

Hanging up and ready to go are my August/September words for writing and some noun and verb cards from my Fun With Parts of Speech. You can see I have two activities ready to go. Making a list of school words and making a book about school. Both of these can be found here. I'll be hanging up my writing menu soon too!

This is my classroom library.

My character trait posters can be found here.
The reading skills and strategies posters can be found here.

I keep extra supply bins here.

This is my Super Improvers Wall. The left side is for kindergarten and the right side is for first grade. I haven't put up names for kindergarten yet. I decided it was easier to put the children's names up instead of labeling each new star they earn.

This is my focus board. I teach kindergarten and first grade, so that is why you see two sight word labels.

You can find my alphabet posters here.
And I have some of the focus board labels here and here.

This year, I brought all my Journeys files and activities to school, and they now live in this HUGE file cabinet draw.

I have everything I need for each week inside a labeled folder.
 I am nothing if not organized! :)

I hope you enjoyed my classroom reveal. I am very excited to begin the new school year on Monday. And it's my birthday this week! Double the fun!

I'll be back soon to do another AWESOME bin giveaway!

  22. Love your room! :) I wanted to know where did you get your bins for your books? Thank you!

    1. Andrea,

      I got the bins from my local supermarket, Publix. They are so sturdy! The dollar store has them, but they're not as sturdy.


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I love to read them!
