How do you remember your days of school? Was it in a sterile environment with plain walls, rows of desks, and a teacher in front of the room? A typical day in our room is nothing like that. I work hard to create an environment that encourages learning and risk-taking.
My class is made up of 25 second grade boys and girls of mixed races in Arkansas.
They attend a Title I school, which means there is a high enough percentage of students receiving free or reduced-price lunch to qualify. Our school is an "open classroom" concept, which is very unique as there are no walls separating the classrooms. These 7- and 8-year-old students are very eager learners; they are like sponges, absorbing all the information and experiences and keep on wanting more.
I will use these materials to organize student centers and work. Students will easily find their work when it is organized using the boxes and magazine organizers. The bulletin board border will be used to help spotlight student work on each bulletin board in the classroom. The dry erase folders will be used in math and literacy centers as well as small groups. The folders will allow for ease of changing centers without the hassle of laminating each item and without making excess copies of work. Students will be able to erase their work and move on to the next center.
