Last time I posted about my Patriotic bulletin boards.
Now I am going to give you the rest of the tour and share my classroom jobs, with a patriotic twist!
I decided my students won't be a Class but a Congress.
They won't be boys and girls, but rather Representatives and Senators.
That means we don't have just any old classroom library!
|The Library of Congress|
|I have part of organized by Fountas & Pinnel level, and the other part by genre/series.|
We have tables instead of desks, so this is their supply storage.
Yes, I found the 23 & 24 bin labels!
|I love using all 2 drawer file cabinets. |
It makes a nice "table" for storage.
|A set of upper cabinets.|
I made these curtains and signs for Made it Monday.
Yep those are paper license plates!
|The other side of the Almond board.|

I have 28 students this year, so some of these jobs are meant for 2 people, and the rest of the students are subs.
The other thing I wanted to mention is my behavior plan.
Behaving Our Way Through the USA
I have a stoplight system.
I taped a US map on each kids bin. If they have a day of green, I initial the state of their choice.
When they fill up the whole map, they will earn a special reward. (I have not decided what exactly that will be, though I have some ideas. I have 48 school days to figure it out. Since today was the second day of school!)
I flew solo on this one. (Remember Antoinette doesn't have a classroom anymore, just office space!)
Where do you teach?
