I'm excited to link up with Latoya again! This week I'm going to show you my three favorite spots in my classroom.
1. I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE my SMART board. It has completely transformed how I teach! I rarely turn it off and have integrated it into every part of the day.
2. My library. I have a slight obsession with children's literature. I have 36 bins arranged by themes here. In another spot I have my leveled library. I love the little chair in the corner. My kids love to cuddle up with a book there during Daily Five.
3. My Book Club area. I call my guided reading groups, Book Clubs. Each club gives themselves a name and they decorate their teams label (on the blue bins). I made my crate seats two summers ago and love them, too. The table may look tiny, but I like to be able to hear my students. I hated my kidney bean table and was lucky to get this from another teacher.

I tried something new today in celebration of Earth Day. I squirted shaving cream on a tray and then added green and blue paint. I gave each student a large white circle and they pressed it into the shaving cream.
After waiting five minutes, we scraped off the extra shaving cream. I love the result.
In other news, I'm being featured on Fun in 1st Grade tomorrow!

Last, I am starting to understand how Bill Murray felt in Groundhog's Day.
It is snowing again! They are saying up to 8 inches. I feel like a broken record!
