Well I’m back in the swing of things. The first three days were pretty good. I have 16 lovely first graders, and I think we’re going to have a great year. This week we worked on routines and expectations. My students loved the Marshmallow Toes! Thanks to Kelli at Castles and Crayons!
Here are some more pictures of my classroom.
Ignore the sorting bins for supplies.
This year I’ve decided to give each table group a drawer set to keep most of their supplies.
Here are what the labels will look like when I tape them onto the front of each drawer. Anything I label always has a complete sentence…reading is everywhere!!!!
I think it will help with the Junky Desk Syndrome. Which reminds me…I need to get my Desk Fairy materials ready.
I made this color chart to go along with my theme.
I also made some color word poems. I got the poems from KinderKorner’s Website a loooong time ago. If you’d like a copy click on any picture below.
This week we worked on Making Five. I read this story:
The students got their own cookie jar page along with five cookies. They decided how many cookies they wanted in their jar and how many cookies they wanted out of the jar.

Have a great Sunday afternoon! I’ll be back with more fun stuff next weekend.
