Calendar, Group, and Library OH MY! (Let's Get Acquainted Linky Party)

I'm really excited about Flying Into First Grade's Let's Get Acquainted Linky topic.  It is:
My Classroom (Share Three Favorite Areas)
I really love seeing picture of other classrooms.  I always get so many ideas.  I like really organized spaces that emphasize function.  Below you will find three areas that get a lot of use in my first grade classroom.

Number 1-Calendar

Number 2-Group Area

Number 3-Class Library

Real estate is at a premium in the classroom.  These three spaces certainly earn their keep.  Now head on over to Flying Into First to take a peek at some other classrooms.


  1. I wish I was a student in your class! I love all of the storage space you have and those clear crates! Wow! LOVE them! How do you like your Apple tv? Our district is starting to phase them into our schools. Found you through the linky, I'm a new follower!

    1. The container store I didnt catch that at first!! Awesome it looks so great

    2. I looked and looked for exactly what I wanted. I finally found them at the container store online. They are called multi purpose bins. They have different sizes. I ordered the smaller ones for my kids' Daily Five book boxes.
      Oh and the container store does teacher discounts.

  4. Your classroom looks wonderful! Thanks for sharing :-)

  5. Your classroom looks so homey! I'm interested in the Apple TV and how that works. There have been some discussions at my school about them. I'm jealous of the brainpop access. I'm hoping that's something I can find funding for for next year! I'm your newest follower!

  7. Love the Rocket book. Thanks for stopping by.

  8. Your room is beautiful! I especially like the rug and I think your math vocabulary display (with the tree) is a really great way to get kiddos to appreciate new vocabulary...I may have to steal that for next year! Very organized space; thanks for sharing!

  9. Wow - you are really organized. I'm so glad I found your blog. Thanks for letting us peek into your classroom.

  10. I have a tree painted on my wall and I'm going to steal (I mean borrow) your idea if that's okay!
