Hello! The first day of school is less than a week away! I often put curtains on the shelves in my room to cover items for storage. I tell the children that anything behind the curtain is not usable right now, but will be rotated out over the next few months. Here is a quick and easy curtain I made using a Dollar Tree table cloth.
Lastly, here is my birthday display...hanging above my calendar area. I explained how I printed the months on the cupcakes here.

We are using the Superkids Reading Series by Rowland Reading for the first time this year. I organized my focus wall today.
I have all of the consonants to the right of my smart board.
On the left, I have the vowels, the Superkids poster, and the "Superkid of the Week." Our first unit will focus on Cass and the /c/ sound.
I am still going to have my word wall, but moved it to a different spot in my room. The letters that came with the series are quite large and I don't have enough space to words with them.
I haven't found a lot of visuals online for the Superkids materials, so I thought I'd share what I'm doing. I've started a Pinterest board also...
Thanks for checking in and have a great day!

Time to head back and get my classroom ready for a new year.
Progress today: Calendar Corner, class library, and helpers chart.
(That blank black space is for numbers I still have to laminate...out of laminating film at school.)
