Welcome to My Classroom - My Very Own Treasure Box :)
It is finally ready for the 2011-2012 school year!
This is our literacy centers wall - there is a combination of teacher created & students created centers.

My favorite part of the room!!!!!! My classroom library!!

Taaaada!!!!! My SMARTboard is up!!!! I'm sooooooooo excited!

Now, how's that for organization of teacher's supplies?!?
Classroom Library & Teacher's desk!
My Book Hospital!!!! <3
My Mrs. Zrihen .... read, is reading, will read chart!
What a great way to teach & model for kids how to plan their reading , and show them that I read too!
I actually painted the inside of the frame with chalkboard paint. However, after playing with it a little yesterday, I found that the inside frame is a perfect fit for a post-it!
The post-its are much more manageable because I can just move them from frame to frame when I'm done with them in each category.
My classroom sign inspired by PT & Pinterest!
Bulletin Board outside my classroom!
Posters are free!!
This lovely bulletin board was a joint effort between two wonderful 8th grade girls I had last year & myself. I was the visionary and they executed it!
This is a board right outside of my classroom door that displays one student per grade level (6th, 7th, 8th) weekly and features a picture of the student holding a book they would like to "buzz" about.
Below the picture there is space for an index card where the featured student writes the title & author of the book along with their recommendation.
This is another bulletin board outside my classroom (out in the hall) where students write the title, author, and setting of the book they read on an index card and stretch a piece of yarn to the location on the map.
A really great way to tie in Reading & Social Studies!
A plain & simple look to the outside of my classroom door.
I would love to hear suggestions how to add pizzaz to it!
Another picture of my teacher's desk, library, centers, and entrance of the room.

haha, can you see my addiction to pinterest & PT crafts?

I just love my library!!!! yet another picture :)
I also have beach mats & foldable beach chairs for the kids to take out as nooks and spread in the library.
Here is the front and back of my Journal Jars!
I'm thinking about adding more...
I plan on taking a virtual tour of my room using my flip video next week. I will add it to here.
