Pictures of my Classroom ~ NEW grade level ~ NEW theme ~Welcome to the BEACH!
I finally have a second to breathe and write a post with some pics from my classroom!
Last week was my first full week with students AND we had OPEN HOUSE.. so I have been swamped with getting my room ready and getting the little ones settled in.
I hope you like my classroom~ AS you can see I went with the Beach Theme - I found some great items in Corinna's store and a few ideas on her blog where she posted some great FREEBIES ~
I made a lot of the items myself - but haven't been able to post them all yet in my store.
My students love sitting in the beach chairs and seeing their names on surfboards and shovels... but I really think they like the umbrella and tropical scene in the Writing Reef and in the small narrow hallway as you enter my classroom. I purchased the background scenes here.
I love the way my room turned out - I hope you enjoy the pics!
This is the Writing Reef ~ it is directly across from my teacher desk ~ so after the kids leave for the day I have a fabulous view!
This is a view in the Reading Area. The Bulletin Board says "Riding the Reading Wave".
I made waves to display the different Genres and the description of each genre.
You can see a close up below.
This is the view as you walk into my classroom from the small narrow hallway that connects to the main hall. My room is somewhat oddly shaped - The umbrella you see in the Reading area helps to
create the beach theme. I purchased it at Rite Aid Pharmacy for $9.99 - quite the bargain!
The cardboard surfboard was found online at Oriental Trading ~ it's very easy to put together.
This is the side of my classroom (just next to the Writing Reef). AT top is my new Ocean Alphabet that you can find in our store... and just below is the Daily Five - Tropical theme that Corinna has in her store ~ Surfin' Through Second for FREE.
I hope the beginning of the year has been as much fun for you as it has been for me!
We are all Riding the Wave and Surfing into Second grade ~ looking forward to a great year ahead!
I will try to post some close-ups and more pics later this week! :)
Thanks for reading our blog ~ Kennedy's Korner
Here is a preview of some new items we are almost finished with - they should be in our store by the end of next week!
