This year I am team teaching! Whew… if you’ve ever gone from self-contained to team teaching, then you know how much work it is in the beginning to simply figure out all those little things.. like where does there stuff go? And who sends emails? And what time do we switch? For the love of God what time are we switching today!? Read more
Hello friends! I am so excited to be bringing you my first grade classroom tour today! :) I usually post a tour before school even starts, but this year I decided to wait until we were a few weeks in. I’m really glad I did b/c a real classroom has students in it every day- and this is how my room currently looks!
When I started getting my pictures ready to post, I started to stress out a little because my pictures aren’t the best. I took them in a rush on Friday before leaving, I took them with my camera phone, and my room has no natural lighting. However, I’m posting them anyway because I figure that everyone who reads this is a real teacher anyway and you most likely would face the same issues if you were taking pics of your room! So, my perfectionist tendencies are just going to have to get over it! :)
I’m not going to explain a whole lot about my classroom tour because I know you just want the pictures anyway… I usually do! :) Let me know if you have questions!
I am here to tell you about how I manage my small group lesson plans. I don’t know about you, but the less notebooks/binders/lesson plans I have to keep up with throughout the day, the better. I also don’t use a typical lesson plan book. I bought a notebook from Target that had about 90 pages in it and I glued in a lesson plan template every week. That being said, I had extra room in my lesson plan book for my small group lesson plans. Read more
That’s why I created my Meet the Teacher Pack. This resource has been an integral part of my back to school paperwork routine for 3 years. Read more
