Classroom!

I have been out of town for a lot of the summer but I am back in town and have been working on my room a lot the past few days!  

I've got a long way to go but here are some pictures of what I've got so far:

Welcome to Miss Paul's room!
When you walk in towards the back of the room there is the "second grade road".  Next to it is a sign with a bunch of things we will be learning this year!  This little display may just be one of my favorite things in the whole room!  I saw the idea written about somewhere, expect for the signs were all along the road.  I changed mine up a little :)  The stick that the signs are on is a bolt from fabric.

This is my carpet area!  Calendar, morning meeting, read aloud, story sharing, lessons, etc, it's all going to go down right here : )

On the stand next to my chair I have my compliments and concern jars.  Students can write compliments and or concerns that are distributed or discussed at our weekly class meetings.

Mountain Language will go up on this bulletin board.  Above the bulletin board is my birthday train!  It says "All aboard the Birthday Express".  I put the kids names along with the day that they were born on strips above the car with the month in which they were born.


I decorated above some of the cabinets with things from around the world.  I've got a travel theme going on if you haven't picked up on that yet.

Bookshelf. Still need to do a little organizing.


This is my wolf.  He is from Mexico.  I have the students put him on their desk when they go to the bathroom.  This way only one person is out at a time and I can always see who is out. 


This is a combo of two quotes that I found on Pinterest of course.  I painted it.  A little inspiration for my kiddos!

Rules, consequences, rewards.

My bookshelf.  Done Jars and Warm Fuzzy jar are both there!

"Paul Airlines - were learning takes flight"  I found the tag line somewhere and painted it on the airplane that I found at Hobby Lobby.  I just couldn't pass that plane up!

George!  Actually, I don't know what his name will be this year.  I let the kids brainstorm names and then vote on the first day of school.  He goes home with one student each weekend.  They take him home, play with him to their hearts content, write about it all, and then bring him back in his suitcase on Tuesday and share about their weeked with the class.  
 
No Name, No Grade!  This is where no name papers are going this year.  I am going to attach a pen to it with a string so that students can write their name on their paper and turn it back in if their paper does happen to end up here.  Students will be responsible for checking for no name papers.

That's all for now folks!  It's coming along slowly but surely!
