I love to search blogs and see classroom pictures. I like to see what other people are using, how they set things up, and what classrooms across the country look like.
Here are some pictures from my room. As you'll see, I work in a district that really values the use of technology in the classroom (our district got our first SmartBoard when I was a student in 5th grade!). I am in an eMINTS type program, so I have 1 computer for every 2 students.
I've also been lucky to receive many, many, many wonderful items from Donors Choose. If you don't yet know about this site, check out some of my previous posts. Donors Choose requires a little bit of work, but you get a huge return on your investment. Try it, and if you have ANY questions, just ask, and I will try my best to help!
|Here's our Reading Zone. Bean bags, blue ottoman, little tables, book tubs ansd books (on the shelf under the Morning Work basket), and supply cubbies ALL FROM DONORS CHOOSE!|
|Mail boxes from Donors Choose. Notice the 3 huge stacks of notebook paper! I love the built in, room-length shelves, and the wall of windows! Although, the windows do make it hard to see the SmartBoard in the afternoon.|
|Front of the room. SmartBoard, computer cart, my desk and shelf cubby/closet (to the right of my desk, but not in the picture). That big gold box is our treasure box. One of my best garage sale finds ever!|
