Here is a tour of our classroom this year. My theme was stars last year and I decided after all the money and energy I put into it last summer that I would keep it the same and just add to what I already had. I just try to focus on having a room that is bright and homey... somewhere they kids want to be considering how much time they are there each day!

To the left is where I keep all of my "teacher" stuff. All of my files, manuals, books, and materials are kept back here. We don't really have traditional teacher desks in our primary building. Below is the word work station. There are NWF word sorts, stamps, CVC and word family activities to start off the year.
The writing center below has whole class writing journals and the little trashcan has writing prompts in it. They kids just pull out a writing prompt from the little trashcan. There is a cabinet behind this area that holds all sorts of writing paper, pre-made books, scrap paper and writing utensils.
The rug area below is where we gather. I keep the Venn Diagram pocket chart hung up all year. The student book boxes are in the window. Once we get our rules down, they will all pick books in their level to keep in their boxes and their pictures will be on their boxes.
