Are you ready for my classroom reveal? This year I changed from 1st grade to 2nd grade. That meant a classroom change too. Along with the room came a new teaching partner. I'm really trying to find a balance in life so I promised myself that I would organize the room and just get everything set up so that the kids can learn. It was hard parting with my over the top classroom decorations. However, I love that I was able to get everything done and I'm not stressed out. Here are some pictures of our room.

I wish that I could remember who I saw do a word wall on the whiteboard first so that I could give them credit. I found it on Pinterest. I love that I can write and change the words as needed. It really comes in handy during testing time.

My favorite part of our wall has to be that it is so interactive. We set it up so that we can change out the subject vocabulary and anchor charts. I came up with the idea to attach clips to the board so that we can just switch out the charts. It is very user friendly and will keep the paper looking nice for some time. The AR/RP clipchart is nice because the students can track their own points. We can use this on our teacher evaluations at the end of the year to show student's tracking their own data.

I'm in love with Inspirted Owl's Decorate Your Classroom and Greatest School Year Ever ! It really sets a tone for the year.
