One of my favorite things to do as a teacher is walk through other fabulous classrooms. I love seeing their layout, bulletin boards, students work, organization, theme, and ideas. Back to school time is always a good time to do this when things are shiny and new, but I also like doing it at the end of the year when the room has been fully “lived in” too. Maybe that’s because teachers have tweaked things throughout the year to get them just right, or maybe it’s because the students’ personalities are all present too. Either way, the end of the year is approaching and I’d love to take a look inside your classrooms.
That’s where my linky party comes in. Show off your bulletin boards, libraries, computer areas, centers, desks, whatever you want! Maybe you have a fantastic organizational system we all need to see. You know you’ve put your heart and soul into your classroom, so show us your favorite part. You can sign up for my linky party below. You know you want to!
My favorite thing about our classroom is our meeting area. I love that it’s right in front of our reading and writing bulletin boards, which makes referencing our mini lessons easy. I also love the conversations that happen there. During our read alouds this year, we’ve laughed with Oscar as he tries to get rid of his little brother in Operation Dump the Chump by Barbara Parks and cried along with Ricky in A Dog Called Kitty by Bill Wallace. We’ve learned about genres, inferences, leads, and so much more in reading and writing workshop. I also have a personal connection to our rocking chair since it’s the same one my father made for my mother when they got married. It’s been lovingly repainted many times, but just think of all the children it has rocked over the years. This little spot in our room is certainly filled with love AND learning so it’s easy to see how it’s our favorite spot in our room.
