Classroom Pictures!

I *finally* have my classroom arranged.  For some reason, I just could not get things the way I wanted them.  So, here are a few pics.  There's still some cleaning out/organizing to be done.  And then decorating!!
This is my Smartboard/meeting area. 
This is a view from the doorway.
My teaching easel, table that houses magnets, student number sticks, and pointers.
The blue crate holds clipboards and dry erase boards.
Instead of a desk, I have a bookcase.  I've always had a small "teacher" table.  But this year, seeing as how I will have 25+ children, I need all the space I can get.  The bins are labeled Monday - Friday. The binders are for lesson plans, parent communication, behavior documentation, etc.
My library.  The blue shelves will house leveled books.

The blue bins on top of the book case hold AR books.
The other bins are sorted genre/category.
Not sure what I'm going to do with the colored bins yet (found it at a yard sale for $20!).
 I'm thinking either math manipulatives or math stations. The crates have cushions with them that the kids use as "book nooks" during independent reading.
Student tables.  The one on the left and directly in the middle are lowered.
The kids sit on rugs.
Last year was my first year trying it out and they LOVED it!
More student tables.  The small one looks awkward there to me, but I'm thinking I'll need it for those extra kiddos that show up !
That's all for now!  I'll post more next week!! :)

I just found your blog....your room looks great! I love having the short tables, what a fun idea! You'll have to let me know what you end up doing with those colorful bins...I have 2 sets of them that I bought for super cheap but haven't decided what to use them for yet! One idea I had was community supplies (markers, crayons, scissors, glue, etc.)

Jenn, I think I got the bins at Dollar General. It was a few years ago so I'm really not sure!
