Let's Get Acquainted! My Classroom

This week Mrs. Reed asks that we share our 3 favorite areas in our classroom.  So here we go:

1. My Frame Wall!  
On the first day of school I take pictures of my kids and put them in these frames.  Instead of rushing to have the kids write something I just put their names under their pictures this year.  It was just a temporary idea, but I noticed that the kids used the names all the time when they were writing letters in centers so I left their names up.  The point of it was for it to feel like a family photo wall.  It has added a great sense of community in our room!

2. My Author of the Month Wall. 
The kids look forward to reading these books.  I wanted to do this since I began teaching but I didn't have enough books for each author.  I decided to invest in books and it has paid off!  My kids use the books to make predictions and write stories about the ones that we haven't read yet.

3. My objectives board.
I have struggled with ways to post my objectives but I found the solution thanks to my Cricut!  Now the objectives look nice and organized while being useful!

4. I know, it's supposed to be three, but this isn't really an area and I love it so much!  It's the string that hangs across my room.  The kids love seeing their work on display this way.

So now head over to Flying into First and link up your classroom photos!

    1. Hello Tina! I made those frames using my Cricut. It's from a cartridge called Fancy Frames. They took a few hours to make but it was pretty easy :)

  3. Like everyone else, I LOVE that frame wall! Are they actually frames or you printed the pictures on them?

    1. Mandy,
      I cut them out using my Cricut. The frames are from a cartridge called Fancy Frames. I took pictures of my kids and printed the pictures at home. The next day I had each student pick out their frame and I taped their picture in there. Pretty simple wall to keep up. At the end of the year I send their pictures home and the wall is ready for next year :)

  8. Those frames are an excellent idea, and the author of the month, and the string across the ceiling... I'm so glad I found your blog. Thanks for letting us peek into your classroom.
