|Welcome to my 5th grade reading classroom. |
This is what my classroom looked like before I moved in! I had two large metal storage cabinets, a teacher desk, two bookshelves, a round table, and student desks and chairs. Wait until you see the transformation!
My reading mini-lesson area. I also use this area for morning meeting. I bought the wicker chair from Garden Ridge and the little table from Big Lots. It is a comfy spot to read and to teach lessons to my students. The chart stand is perfect for writing anchor charts and the bulletin board behind this area will serve as our anchor chart display. The book baskets to the right in the picture are for our leveled library. I got the shelves at Big Lots when they went on sale and I had a 20 percent off coupon. My husband put them together. I found the turquoise baskets at Big Lots as well. I made the level signs with scrapbook paper and my Cricut. Now, my students can easily find books on their level.
