Where It All Goes Down...

Hey ya'll!  I can't believe it's been almost a month since I blogged!  That has got to change!  Yesterday was a month that we have been in school.  Here in Mississippi we are waiting for Hurricane Issac to make his mark.  In order for people to evacute, school is closed today and tomorrow.  I know many of my students moved here from New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina, so needless to say I had *a few* tears yesterday.  They were babies when Katrina hit, but I guess they have heard stories from their families.  So I'm using today to play catch up on putting in grades, lesson plans, and centers...and watching my newly adopted cat Louella Mae swing on the curtains of course!  Before I get started on school stuff, I need to  catch up in Blog Land-- seeing as how I totally missed Blog Hoppin's Teacher Week!  Total sadness!  I'm going to start off with Where I Teach Wednesday.  I love looking in to everyone else's classrooms. 
My very, very, very organized and leveled classroom library!  I think this is my favorite part of my classroom!

Here is the area above the board.  I have added a multiplication and division sign up there, and a math focus bulletin board since then.

My small group area...I love small group time!

My reading center area....I don't teach reading but they still get to pick out a book to read if they finish their work early.  The window is my Wishing Well (more on that later).

My Rick Morris Behavior Clip Chart...Hollywood style.  Please excuse the mess, my friend Heather took these pictures when she was helping me get my classroom together.  :)

If you haven't linked up yet, go and join the party!

It's that time again...time for Farley's Currently Linky!  For once, I'm joining kind of early!  I can't believe that school starts tomorrow!  I *wigged out* and spent $20.00 on copies...yes...copies.  So after a few whole bag of Reese's and $20 bucks later, I feel much more prepared for the first day of school!
