Classroom Pics...Finally!

Hey y'all! I know I have been a little MIA lately...but it has all been due to the 1st week of know how that goes! Anywho...the 1st week is behind us now...and it was a great one at my new batch of kiddos! They are sweet and polite, and oh so cute! Hope it continues throughout the year!
So...remember when I said I would only have 15 kids...yeah, well it didn't turn out that way during registration...not quite. Our school is experiencing growing pains..and I now have 23 students...I'm actually the one with the smallest class, the other 2 first grade teachers are both at 25 students! Yikes! Hopefully we will get a new teacher soon...this way I'll go back to my original keep your fingers crossed please!
Due to having this many kiddos...I had to make some small changes in my it is for your enjoyment!
Library area...the bulletin board will be my Spanish Word Wall.
Love my little tree...and the Good Readers sign from Christie.
Word Work area...and my little owl painting my lovely daughter made for me.
Another owl painting.
The chunk wall is located in the Word Work area.
Computer area.
Poetry and Fluency area.

I absolutely LOVE your classroom! You seem like such a wonderful teacher and I aspire to be a teacher as well and this just warms my heart to see someone put so much thought into where they work and spend the majority of their time. I bet your students love you :)
