Let's Get Acquainted and a Giveaway!

     I am linking up again with Latoya for her Let's Get Acquainted Party.  This week we are sharing three different parts of our classrooms that we love!  Make sure to click on the picture below and head on over to link up!

 1.  This is my reading area.  We do whole group reading on the rug.  It is also a space where students can read with partners, read to themselves, or work in small groups. 


 2.  This is a favorite space of mine because it is how I organize my reading groups.  These bins are where I keep books for each day of the week. I keep everything I need for the week in them and when students take chapter books home, they put them in the correct bin for the day when they bring it back.  In the little blue basket I keep reader response journal prompts, so they are always at a hands reach.

3.  This is part of my calendar.  This is an old picture, but I love the calendar.  First and foremost, I use it each day in teaching, but also I think it is bright and cheery and I like changing the poem and decorations for each month!

I can't wait to take a look into some of your classrooms and see what wonderful things you have in your rooms!  I always love finding new ideas! 

Don't forget that tonight my giveaway ends!  Click HERE to go to my post and enter to win 5 wonderful prizes! 

Have a great week!


  1. I love those giant leaves around your reading area! Where did you find those? So cool!

    1. Thanks! I ought them at Ikea 3 years ago and they still have them! There are three or four teachers with them at my school. They are fairly inexpensive, too!

  2. OMG your room is fierce!! I love it all! It looks so inviting! I know your kids love your classroom :-) I need some decorating tips!
