Several items I used were free animal print resources done by others. I used the Craft Board from Ladybug Teaching Files and Safari themed frames from another seller on Teachers Pay Teachers that I will display our homework assignments on. I would link them, but they are no longer available. I do think it would be easy enough to recreate though.
The bulletin board to the left is my “testing” vocabulary wall. I refer to it often and review the words so that my kids recognize them and KNOW them. Half of the challenge with testing is not getting hung up on vocabulary. Here is the link to the resource in my shop.
At the front of my room, I have my Smartboard for whole group modeling. In the foreground, I have a second guided reading table for the time when I have a teaching assistant in the room. She tutors and runs some small group intervention with me.
To the right of my Smartboard, I display anchor charts we’re using on magnetized curtain rods I found at Walmart. I used the clip rings to hang them. They hold 3-4 posters max, but they are handy.
Well, my room is done, but my lesson plans are not. Enjoy the day off everyone. I’ve put things off for a bit, so it’s time to get busy!
