Where I Teach Wednesday-Linky!

So today is the first day of school!   Yippee!   I have been working hard for a few weeks and ...well...this is where I work!












 In my classroom library I have pillows.  I have made pillow covers out of towels in the past. I wanted new colors this year, so I called my mom!!!

This is a cheap way to cover old pillow forms.  Check out how you can make your own WASHABLE pillows!!!

  5. I LOVE your pocket chart for writing folders. I have been looking everywhere for one like that. Can you tell me where you got it? Also, on your writers workshop board, what kind of cloth do you have hanging and how do you stick the vocabulary cards on it?

    I noticed a FABULOUS treee in the corner of your pics. I am doing Zoo Phonics this year and I'm wondering HOW you made that coconut tree....Did you have a post about it on your blog once or was that someone else?? Any tips for me. It looks incredible!!

  9. Awwww! Don't ya just love being able to call on mom! My mom made all of my curtains in my classroom - she even sewed a tag on each one that says "made with love by MOMMY" {how cute}.

    I love your work stations management chart. I might need some coaching on this from you...I just received word that I am loosing my full-time help in the classroom that I've had for 12 years {budget cuts, grrr}. So 4 days into school, my planning has to change. HELP!!!!

    1. Let me know what I can do to help! You can ask here or email me. I have 20 kiddos without an aide... so my perspective will be from that environment. Oh, and we are full day.

  10. Nice...when I grow up, my classroom will be as organized as yours! It looks fantastic! I am definitely going to go back and define my work areas for the tub activities like yours :)
    We have been in school for almost two full weeks (tomorrow) and I am up to 26, with a full-time aide though. I seem to block how tough the beginning of school is every year...

  11. Wow, it came together so nicely! I am hoping next year I won't be a last minute hire and can organize before I open the classroom. I've learned so much from you, thank you!

  12. I love all your ideas and hope that someday I can implement them. Right now I am a sad, unemployed teacher who would love to be back in the classroom. When, I do get there I will have plenty of new ideas.

  16. Hi Mrs. Wills! I adore you classroom so much. I was wondering if you could please tell me what the plastic looking holders you hang on the back of the door for student work are and where you purchased them. :) Thank you so so much!

    1. I have had them for a long time, but I found some on Amazon that are similar. Type in these words in the search bar and it should come up:

      Pendaflex Poly Index Folders, 10 Pack, Letter, Assorted 50981

      Let me know if you can't find them :)

  19. I'm so jealous of your huge classroom! I live in a shoebox, but I make the best of it! I love your student work display idea. I'm hopefully finding room to add that to my classroom! Thanks!
