# Classroom Reveal

Hi everyone! I haven’t started school yet so my classroom is not totally finished. We don’t start until Tuesday and the kids come in on Thursday, so I still have a few more days to work on my room.

Here is what my room looked like when I went into school on Tuesday.

The back of my room.

Of course all of the desks are pushed together into two rows!

The front of my room with my Smartboard. Unfortunately, it is the only technology I have in my room.

So, I worked on my room from Tuesday until Thursday and I am STILL NOT FINISHED!! I feel as if my room has thrown up. There are things everywhere!

Here is a picture of my Math Focus Wall. I have the calendar and charts for the students to write number of the day in different ways. My kids write the number of the day using base ten blocks, they create fact families, they write number in words, standard form, and expanded form. The charts also include determining if the number is odd or even and other math routines. I haven’t finished the math wall yet. I’m thinking of including the math vocabulary words here, but I’m not sure yet.

Here is a picture of the back of my room. The back is divided into science and social studies. I plan to hang up the anchor charts, vocabulary, and student work to go along with each unit.

This is one of my favorite parts of my room! I am not crafty, so I consider this to be a big accomplishment! I have The Homework Club and my job chart. You can read about how I made the homework club and job chart {Here} on Made It Monday. I also used the oil drip pan to make my schedule, or flow of the day. I still have to stick magnets on the back of the sentence strips, but I had left them at home.

This is my other favorite part of the room. My kids always gave so much to say to me or their classmates, especially on a Monday. So I decided to create a message wall. I have a metal door and I attached dry erase magnets on the door for kids to write messages on. Then I used velcro to attach four dry erase markers to the door. I plan on gluing pom poms to the top of each marker to use as erasers. For some reason, the picture will not rotate. Sorry!!

I don’t have a picture of my seating arrangement yet because I am not happy with it! Right now I have 4 groups of 6 desks and 1 group of 8 desks. I have to leave room for the meeting area and the room looks really cluttered. I’m thinking of making 4 groups with 8 desks in each. What do you think? Do you think that 8 second graders sitting together would be too many?

Hopefully, I will have better pictures to share with you during the week. I’m sorry if the pictures are blurry. We were being kicked out of the school at 2:30 on Thursday and of course I was trying to get so pictures! ðŸ™‚
