Saturday Snapshots.. A tour of my room!

I have been a BAD blogger lately.. I'm sawry :(

We just finished our first week of school and I am EXHAUSTED. Now that we are back in the routine again though, I have lots of blogging to share! So you're going to see read me a lot more :)

I am linking up this Saturday morning before a full day of volleyball with Run, Miss Nelson's Got the Camera for her wonderful Saturday Snapshots linky and Tales of a First Grade Teacher!... A TOUR OF MY ROOM! :) I have posted a few previews on instagram and many of you have requested more, so here you go!

{My room from the back looking towards the door!}

{Behind my desk with my toolbox, organized drawers, note for the teacher bin and lamp!}

{My Word Work station. Lots of bins filled with dry erase markers, magnets, stamps, Thesaurus' dry erase boards, clipboards, playdo, and more!}
{More Word Work bins}

{Word Work Table}

{Full view of Word Work}

{Student Book Bins.. blue for one class, green for the other}

{Brain breaks, pick me pot, and compliments jar}

{Team caddy's with dry erase answer circles}

{Comfy reading corner!}

{Most of the reading corner.. kiddos LOVE this place!}

{View from my desk of the room}

{Left front of the board with Grizzly 5 Rules, Noise letters and schedule}

{Table in front of my desk where students turn in work, birthday balloons, and early finishers bin}
{Homework board}

{Back in my library, more shelves!}

{More of the shelves!}

{Library bins! I do blue for fiction and green for nonfiction}

{Close up of bins. Labels from my Turquoise, Lime, and Yellow classroom decor pack!}

{View of my desk}

{NOISE letters for classroom management.}

{Another view of the reading corner!}

{READ sign}

{Daily schedule close up}

{LOVE my word wall. I use glitter clothes pins to attach cards to the ribbons}

{Our Work Sparkles! Student display bulletin board}

{Student desks}

{Close up of the tree! We talk about our brains being "bare" before reading, and as we read we GROW. Students get to add a leaf to the tree each time they finish a book so it is full like our brains by the end of the year from reading!}

{Welcome sign outside my room}

{Full view of "Wondrous Words" word wall}

{Work on Writing Center with my Interactive Writing tri-fold from my TPT store! Also, I use the curtains for "teacher area" so students know not to go in there.}

{On my door. Still need a few more decorations up here!}

Hope you enjoyed your field trip to my room :) Thanks for stopping by! It's going to be a GREAT year.
