2018-2019 Classroom!

Now that I am getting somewhat settled in, I figured it was time to show off a few pics of my new classroom!!! In case you haven't heard, I have a new teaching job.

I have seven groups set up, and the buckets are filled with supplies that students might need for that day. I got the bucket idea from a couple of teachers in my department. I put the following in my buckets: colored pencils, pencils, highlighters, index cards, erasers, pencil sharpeners. When we use whiteboards, I will put the erasers and markers in there. Also, I will put in handouts, INB pages, etc. Beside the buckets are the infamous Name Tents from Sara Vanderwerf. 

Here is my desk area. I bought a small parts organizer from Home Depot this summer and printed off some labels from TpT. I used red paper from the schools and I bought the border (which is ribbon) from Hobby Lobby. 

I had an extra rolling chair. Here are a couple of posters. I also have my "Distractions that Interrupt Learning" box as well as an area for missing assignments. 

 Cabinets (excuse the mess) 

 Here is a famous quote from Fawn Nguyen. I made the sign last year. I also have an AVID sign from my previous school (my new and previous school are both AVID schools). I bought the sign from Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago. 

 I got this idea for a poster from Brielle. It is called "How to be a Math Person." Here is the tweet

 Front of the room 

 8 Math Practices and I Can Statements at front of room. 

My Math Norms poster, inspired by Jo Boaler's Math Norms. The other signs were from the previous teacher. 

 Fist to Five (got from a colleague at my former school). My guidelines poster was made by my fiance's sister, who is a graphic designer. 

 Got this idea from Mrs. y=akubov and made my own version.

My infamous Math Rules banner, designed by my fiancĂ© three years ago!
