First post! Classroom tour!

Welcome to Miss Chaney's classroom!  I am very fortunate to have moved into a larger room this school year.  Last year I was in a much smaller module.  I absolutely L.O.V.E. the amount of space I have.  Take a look!

This is the view from the front door.

This the view from the front door looking right.

 This is the back of the room - classroom library, schedule, mailboxes, and Fountas and Pinnell levels.

Closer view of the classroom library and my storage cabinet that doubles as a display for my Fountas and Pinnell levels and schedule.

Front right corner, looking caddy corner towards the back.  You can vaguely see my teacher desk, classroom library in the back of the room, and writing center.

Front left corner, looking caddy corner to the back (opposite of above).  You can see my lovely pink word wall, my teacher table, and the front door.

Middle of the room looking backwards.

I {heart} my kidney table!

My bright pink word wall is one of my favorite parts of my room.  C'mon, who doesn't love pink??

Science bulletin board and academic vocabulary (green part).

I bought that cubby unit off of Craigslist for $25 and the inside storage bins from Target for $2.50.  It is my favorite storage piece!

I spy with my little eye...a vacuum cleaner!

Back of the room looking towards the front.

You may have noticed these babies in some of the photos.  These are my students' book boxes.  Students choose 3 books out of the classroom library after they finish writing down their homework in the morning.  They keep these books for the entire day, that way I don't have to worry about children clobbering each other in the classroom library throughout the day.  This is one of the best things I've done for classroom management.

That's my wonderful, colorful room!  It is my home away from home...sadly, I spend more time there than anywhere else.  The bright pink word wall makes it worth it. ;)
