Classroom Snapshots

I am really feeling my classroom so far this year.  I spend so much time in there that I want it to feel nice and homey.  I also want my kids to like it and want to be there!  I thought I would share some pics, so I made a college.

The top 3 pics are bulletin boards in my room.  Calendar, Wild about Fluency, and then the ABC center alphabet banner.  I am going to put fluency goal numbers on the zebra bulletin board and then put students name under their goals as they reach them.  The alphabet banner I found on Teachers pay Teachers for free!  Love it.  I hung it with clothespins on silver elastic string.  The tins in the middle I found at the One Spot at Target.  They have little chalkboard labels on them.  I filled a vase with colorful plastic letters and tied a purple bow on it for decoration on a table in my classroom.  I saw it on Pinterest a couple years ago.  Lots of goodies are from Crayons to Computers including the “C” décor on my desk, all the felt I used for bulletin board backdrop, and some of the picture frames.  I have several pictures of my little boy.  I can’t get enough of his sweet face.  I tell my students all about him too so it gives them a face to go with the name.  🙂  I also got 2 packs of wallpaper samples at Crayons to Computers, which I am loving.  I used them to make the leaves on the “apple tree” at the bottom, and for background paper for some other projects.  I use the cart of drawers for students’ materials.  Works really well for me as an Intervention Specialist.  I can put students’ individualized work and activities in their drawer, and keep their finished products in there as well.  My word wall is the “technology themed” one I made and it’s available in my TpT store for $2.00. The “Masterpieces” heading at the bottom is where I put all the artwork and notes my students give me.  ❤  I hope you like it!

My school year has started of great and I feel so blessed.

Spelling Aides

These are two documents to help students with spelling sight words correctly!  Both contain the Dolch 220 sight words, Pre-Primer through Third Grade on a one page document.  I created these spelling aides to give to students as an accommodation to help them with writing.  My Spelling Buddy is the document I use for elementary age students and My Spelling Aide is the document I use for middle and high school students.  (I tried to make it look appropriate for older students.)  I worked with some older students last year who used this to help them with writing.  I hope you like them!  I will put them on my tpt page soon.  Let me know what you think!  Blessings,  Courtney
