A shot of what the desks looked like on the first day of school. I have since had SEVERAL seating arrangments, and the most recent seems to be working...especially with centers! Look for an updated arrangment!
Look closely at the poster at the bottom of this picture. I was trying to get my hands on one of these while I was shopping for the beginning of the school year. I couldn't find it anywhere! One of my mom's friends, who is no longer a teacher, gave me a lot of great decorations for my classroom. This was one of the things she gave me. We recite this poem EVERY time we leave the classroom, even if it is just to take a restroom break!
This is a shot of what my hall passes looked like before they all were dropped and broken. I don't get why the kids are so rough with things! I even had nice hooks in the bathroom for them to hang them on. I did this mainly so they wouldn't take them into the stalls with them! Eew!
