Great Start to the New School Year


 Getting to know you YARN THROW


 SRA Imagine It CONCEPT Board

 Outside my door

 non-lexiled books

 Math corner and front of board

 Social Studies concept bulletin board

 My desk

My classroom a few hours prior to Open House

 Read this book, spoke about spreading rumors, then had each student crinkle the heart to show how rumors, lies, and bullying hurts people's hearts. You can flatten out the crinkle, but it will always be there.

Teacher Business Card with QR code

Thanks to Mimi over at 5thGradeRocks5thGradeRules , I recreated my business cards on Publisher. I put my QR Code on them instead of clip art. I changed the color to go with our school colors and I love it!!!

MORE classroom set-up stuff

I start back to school on August 14th; have staff development the 14-17th. Open House is the 20th and my students start on the 22nd. TIME IS FLYING BY and there is seriously NOT enough time to get everything together in the time this is why I ALWAYS go into my classroom in the summer and work as much as I can. There's always a ton of paperwork that needs to be completed before the first day of school. That is why I try to have my entire room done so I can have a clear head for the monotony that is --paperwork!


The above questions were taken from the 5th grade Common Core standards. I am going to print them out and place them next to my math word wall. I will refer to these while teaching and have them up all year for my students to use as well.


The numbers are for my students. Every morning the students must flip their card over so the number is showing. This way, when I take attendance, I know who is in class that day. At the end of the day, on their way out the door, each student turns their number to the back--ready for the next day
