From the Back Again
Essential Questions and Homework
Calendar Math & Classroom Expectations
The students' birthdays are written on birthday cakes I got at the Target $1 Spot!
These are my Hot Pink Zebra Cursive Word Wall Cards!
Our Classroom Library & Crate Seats
I loved making these crate seats! They were so much fun, and my students LOVE them!
I am so proud of my library this year! I made my own zebra book bin labels, and I have genre posters in zebra that will go on the bulletin board to the left of the library in the order that I teach them!
Our Writing Wall
My Writing Process Zebra posters turned out great! I will be putting up my Six Traits Zebra posters as I teach each trait! I will add to the editor's checklist as I teach different editing pieces to my students!
Magnetic Interactive Writing Process Chart
Yes, this is a cookie sheet I bought at Wal-Mart!!! My students will move their class number (each student is assigned a number each year that goes on all their papers) as they go through each step in the writing process! It is a great way to keep your students organized and accountable, and it helps me keep track of where my students are!!! LOVE this!!!
Magnetic Writing Conferences Chart
Yes, this is another cookie sheet from Wal-Mart!!! The students names or numbers are going to go under the day I will conference with them!!!
I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my clock! I have actually sent these clock labels to several of my colleagues, and they are using them in their room too!
Magnetic Bathroom Breaks Chart
This is a white board I bought from Wal-Mart. I added some ribbon and my cute signs to make a chart for my students to keep track of their bathroom breaks! Each student in my class gets 2 bathroom breaks in addition to the whole class breaks we take each day. If they need to go to the bathroom, they just raise a number 1 and I nod yes or no! This is a great classroom management tool! Bathroom breaks are no longer an interruption in my classroom!!!
Treasure Chest (Classroom Incentive)
Each time our class gets a compliment from another teacher, the students get a gem in our treasure chest! When they fill the treasure chest up, they get to choose a class party: pajama day, popcorn, ice cream, etc!! This is an idea I got from Ginger at Ginger Snaps last year! We taught on the same team last year, and I just had to
steal borrow this cute idea from her!!! :)
I have 4 groups in my classroom this year. When a group is on task or showing respect, they get to move forward 1 spot. When a group gets to 12, they get to choose a group reward: no shoes day, sit on the crates day, change seats for a day, etc!!
Pencil Dispenser and Pencils Cup
This is one of my projects that I was SOO excited about this year!!! I ordered this straw dispenser online this summer! Each day, I have 38 sharpened pencils (2 for each student) in the dispenser. They can get up to 2 pencils each morning. Each afternoon, the students put their pencils back into the pencil cup. I have one student who sharpens pencils each afternoon and fills the dispenser back up with 38 pencils! It has worked GREAT! The students love going to the pencil sharpener each morning, and I don't have to listen to students sharpening pencils each morning when they could be doing their morning work! AH-MAZ-ING!!!!
I am SOO in LOVE with my room this year! I made all the zebra decor and it is for sale in my Tpt and TN stores!! I cut and laminated everything so I can use it again this year! I hope you enjoyed the tour of my classroom!!!
All of my fun ZEBRA classroom decor is available in my TpT and TN stores! Go check it out! :)
