I thought I would share some pictures from my room and some of the things we did this week, so here goes:
This is where the kids turn in the cards from the back of the AR book. I'm hoping that this will help me keep track of who's reading what (and reduce the number of books that are lost).
Our calendar area and word wall
Our Author Focus wall - we're reading Kevin Henkes books this month. We made Chrysanthemum from First Grade Wow (just click on the link to go directly to the post and download the Chrysanthemum mini unit).
I also made this really cute frame to use for their first day pictures. I think it turned out great!
Well, I was going to post some more pics, but apparently, Blogger is as exhausted by the first week of school as I am and will not load pictures well (it's taken me an hour and a half just to load these). I guess I'll have to try again later.
So, for those of you who have started, how did your first week go?
