Aloha everyone! Tomorrow is the first day of school and my classroom is all set to go. It wasn't too difficult getting it ready since I decided to stick with my surf theme.
On Wednesday we received our class lists and I had 18 students. By Friday I was down to 16! 10 boys and 6 girls. I hope I don't lose anymore. I would hate to see one of our second grade teachers lose their spot!
I did some rearranging and I added a few new items. I also got rid of as much as possible to make more room.
Please ignore my messy desk and a few bags on the floor, it wasn't quite the end of the day.
I love having natural light from all windows, but I have no wall space! And when the wind whips through EVERYTHING flies off the desks!!
This is the view from the front of the room.
This is the back of the room.
I moved my cubbies this year and added a number so I wouldn't have to do it again next year.
My math tubs got some new labels.
So did my manipulatives.
Number sense posters in English and Hawaiian. The ten frames are surfboards :)
Word problem posters
My updated library. I just love the labels!
New Job Chart. I think it came out so cute.
I love the new clips on the chart!
The buckets got some new labels. Guess I forgot to make myself a new label.
New lunch chart
Surfer of The Week
I have had that rules poster on the left forever!! I think it may be time to update.
My welcome banner
And last but not least my desk.
I am really happy with the wide open feel and all the cute new surf decor.
Last year I hosted a Classroom Theme linky party and I thought it would be really fun to do it again!
Share your classroom theme, or just pictures of your new set up. I love looking at everyone's classrooms and I know others do to! Last year's linky is still my most popular post and has had over 20, 000 views!
Monday is the big day and I am really looking forward to a fun new year with a great new group of kids and teachers! When is your first day? Link up and tell all about it!
