Here is a view of the back of my classroom, my work table (where I'll meet with small groups a lot), and our "Action" clothesline wall, where kids can write down times that they see their classmates displaying certain attitudes and attributes we teach at Westwood.
This is our Current Events board. We receive free newspapers several times during the week and this is where we will post stories that have to do with what we're learning. The kids can also write directly on the brown paper with their questions, thoughts, feelings, etc. about the stories.
This is our Reading Recommendation board. Kids can recommend books to others, and I'm going to put a tub out so that after they recommend a book they can place it in the tub for someone else to get. I also have labeled bins for each unit we teach ....."who we are", How the world works" are just a couple. We will also have a reader's choice section where the kids get to choose if they'd read MY pick or not :)
