This year my first graders will be at the beach all year long!
I have had SO much fun shopping for "beach" stuff this summer. Here's what I've collected so far. . .
a giant beach ball to hang over the reading loft/classroom library. . .
mini-beach balls. . .
mini-sand castles for each table "number". . .
supply trays (with glue, scissors, erasers, crayons) for each table. . .
watering cans for pencils. . .
a wall hanger for my keys. . .
alphabet rug-I know this has nothing to do with the beach, but I LOVE the bright colors and wanted to make sure I have a clearly defined space for my "word work" area.
Here's what I'm adding. . .
new chair pockets. . . I want to get ride of my red/blue traditional pockets, and they're in great shape-let me know if you're interested!
I'll also be adding a new reading loft with lots of bright colors!
And of course a palm tree. . .the room wouldn't be complete without it!
Hopefully the entire room will be ready by the first week of August-I'll post lots of pics!
