{Teaching} A Classroom Tour

Happy Wednesday ladies! I hope your week has been off to a great start thus far. Mine most certainly has. On Monday I started back to school with my kiddos. This year I'll be teaching twenty-three precious third graders. Getting to know them over the past few days has been such a pleasure. Each of them bring their own unique personalities to the table and I am so looking forward to getting to see those personalities come out more and more.

I don't often share much about my job as a teacher on here. This is more a blog for me and my little family but since this is a huge part of my life, I decided to welcome you into my little home away from home. As I've mentioned a few times over the last few weeks, I changed up my classroom quite a bit this year. For the last three years I've had an owl-themed classroom. After three years, it was getting rather old. In hopes of spicing it up a little, I set out to completely redecorate my room. After weeks of going back and forth between a nautical theme and a sports theme, I finally decided on the sports theme as it would work for both girls and boys but would be more geared to boys unlike most classrooms. Having played sports all of my life, it was super easy to come up with ideas for the room as I knew most of the sports lingo. It ended up taking me a better part of three whole days to get my room in order and decorated... all of which were non-workdays but in the end all my hard work paid off and I have a room that I love. Even better, all of my students can't stop talking about it!

Here's the tour via my iphone!
The front of my classroom 

"Tackling Tough Words" word wall 

My textbook corner
"Reading is the Goal" strategy board 
"Play by the Rules" classroom rules board 
"Holt's Halftime Report" where I keep important information for the kids
Front corner 
"Team Stats" board for data tracking
The back view of my classroom (minus my work station)
"Concessions" for student's water bottles and snacks
"Team Equipment" where I house extra school supplies for students 
"Team Captains" display. Each student has a jersey.  When it's their day to be a helper their jersey is up. 
Make-up work and homework goes here
Boys & Girls Locker Room for their coats and bookbags

Well that's it ladies! Welcome to my home away from home!
