Teacher Week: Classroom Tour

I'm linking up with blog hoppin for teacher week!
Today is the 'ol classroom tour. I love looking at other teacher's amazing classrooms so this is going to be my favorite day.
Before I begin with mine, keep in mind that our students don't come for another two weeks...so my room still has some polishing until she shines just right, but here is what I have so far.
Photos are taken on my phone...so quality is not so much. sorry!
Here is where I house all my word work activities.

This  is my door going out into the hall. I have my helper for the day chart, behavior clip chart, how we get home chart, and baskets for BEE books.

Here's a look at ALL my cabinets...aren't they amazing? And every single one of them is jam packed FULL!  
Here is where I organize papers. This is where students turn in completed papers and where they come to get new clean paper in different forms.  
Just a quick shot of the back of my classroom. My teacher assistant desk is on the far left then I have two tables for small groups.
This is a peek at the front of my room. My desk is on the far right, along with my Letterland alphabet chart with each character, my birthday board, calendar, and book case to hold student book boxes.

Here's where I teach calendar. Letterland users...if you look at the far right you will see  how I organize my Letterland character cards for live reading and spelling. It makes teaching this so much more efficient. I highly recommend making one. All it's missing is the Letterland header.  
I gave myself a lot of room to write those I can statements this year!

Here's my math wall and how I am organizing my math tubs this year. Did you notice how all of my tubs are mismatched? I worried about it for a split sec before Nickers (my husband) put a stop to my spending. Oh well, maybe next year. I did print off new labels though.  
I also changed my alphabet this year. Instead of having a separate word wall that my students NEVER used...I combined my alphabet chart {which they use a ton} along with my word wall. Now everything is at the front of the room. I'm so excited about this change! 
And I love those hand signal cues
Here's the reading area. Needs a rug or something. And maybe oooonnnneeee more book shelf.
The rest is a work in progress. I don't think I'll ever be done tweaking and perfecting this room. I'm sure you all feel the same way.
Thanks so much for visiting! I can't wait to see your sweet home away from home too!!!
