Mini Classroom Tour... So Far
Something new I am trying is this paper organizer for students to turn their work in.
Right next to the homework drawers, I have a lunch count. Since I don't have a lot of counter space, I have my students use clothes pins with their numbers on it. They place their clothes pin on the ribbon of whatever they want to eat for lunch. I have a student tally it up during morning work time so I can send it to the office.
Another unique thing I have in my room is a 5th grade timeline. At the end of every month, my students and I sit down and write down everything we learned about in school. I hang it above the SMART board. This is great during conferences and at the end of the year to reflect on what we learned during the year.
During open house I have a Giving Tree displayed. Families can take a leaf or two if they wish to donate that particular item to my classroom. This really helps out on classroom expenses.
That's all for now...
