|We will put our "wonderful words" from our novels on colored small cards with packing tape. I'm starting the CAFE so my kids will be reading novels they choose. I will probably have a class novel each grading period but they will be reading by choice for the most part. To make the yellow boarder, I used our P.E. teacher's yellow gym tape. I made the letters. You can get them here.|
|I hot glued dry erase boards to my bulletin board. The board is yellow tissue paper. I just crumbled it up and stapled it. It was really fast.|
|Kids will use cloths pins with their names on them to clip where they are in the writing process. I will use a "writing workshop" model for my writing instruction.|
|Just a shoe rack from Wal-Mart. I had to cut it because my cabinets are narrow. I need my kids to be self-sufficient.|
|This is messy right now but it is my kids' reading area. I have a beach/tiki theme.|
Let me know how you organize your classroom. This is the first year I'm in 5th grade. I NEED all the help and advice I can get.
