My bulletin board to the right of my door. It's my start of the year welcome bulletin board. Each banana has a student name on it. It will be taken down soon for student work.
My Wish for 2nd Grade papers my students did. You can find the paper in a past post. Just click on freebies in the Label section. These will be coming down soon too to go in their writing portfolios. I have matter things we did that will be displayed here instead.
My "Who Am I?" board from the first day of school. I have done these for years so it was funny to see them pop up over blogs and pinterest. The students fill out clues about themselves and then when you flip up that top paper there is a self-portrait and photo of who it is. These too will be coming down and going in their portfolios.
Now on to my Writing Center. As you can see I have the fabulous writing center from A Cupcake for the Teacher on a pocket chart in my writing center and then on the back of the blue pocket chart are mini red pocket charts that hold the ideas for writing cards from Lori.
Here is a picture of where all of the writing center supplies are held. I got the drawer table thing at Costco a few years ago and love it. It has the class shared journals there and other prompts, a baby name book for picking out fun names in stories, a dictionary and thesaurus. There will be more paper added to the clear pocket chart and drawers, they are just at our copy center getting copied. The other drawers hold crayons, markers, and glue sticks. This way if any of those items are found lost on the floor they can be put there and if anyone needs one they can take from there.
The wall to the left of my door. This used to hold the All About Me posters my kids made to teach the class about themselves, but those went home and here is our writing process of the class personal narrative we wrote about the first day of school. This way the students can go look at it if they need a refresher on what step is next and what that means.
I'll leave you with that today. Hope things have been going well with you and hopefully I'll get everything done that needs to get done! :)
