Door Decoration: Here is how I decorated the door for the beginning of school. I used the spy glasses to write the name of each student.
Here are a few up close pictures of my reading center. I used the cute round rugs from target to make the area cozy. The books were sorted by topic or reading series.
I use the round table for my writing center. This was the first day of school so I have student school supplies on the table.
Science Discovery Center: My kids loved watching the hermit crabs. I also had books about hermit crabs and our science theme of study for students to read during this center.
My Pirate Pal... I will blog about my pirate pal in a later post. But... my kids loved being the pirate pal for the week. This is like my star student.
Calendar and carpet area: We are blessed in my school to have 3M projectors. Mine is on the left end of my white board so I had access to it during calendar/carpet time. During calendar time I taught my kids a new state on the U.S. map each week using picture clues in the map. My kids loved it, and every child in my class knew all 50 states by the time they left 2nd grade!
This was my treasured work board. Throughout the year I used this board to showcase my students' best work.
I hoped you liked peeking in my 2nd grade classroom.
I can't wait to post pictures of my new kindergarten classroom!
