Week 0 – Classroom Setup

This post will be brief and mostly in pictures.  My room is set up and ready to go.

My classroom is “deskless” (since January 2017), and I just got some brand new chairs that have much better back support.

Each of the rows have colored felt on the bottom (to prevent scuffing the floor).  Each row has a unique color (this year it’s red, blue, green, and yellow).

Each row has its own designated crate of dry erase lapboards.IMG_0979

This is my classroom library for student-choice reading.

My easel for One-Word-Image activities.

I have both a large white board and large drawing pad for artists.  In the background you can see my shelf-o-props for actors and storytelling/story-asking activities.

I have writing space on both the front and back walls, although there really is no “front” or “back” to the classroom.

I have various word walls posted that I made with PowerPoint and Microsoft Word.

I see students in two days! I’m ready for them!

    Amazing! I would love to go deskless!!!! Do students have lap boards when they write?

    1. Yes, my students have some small white boards to bear down on during writing exercises. They can also bear down on their composition books. I love my desk-less classroom–I don’t know if I could ever go back!

  2. I like your easel and white board set up. Are there any downsides to using that over a pad? Is it sturdy? What are the measurements of the white board? Is it large enough to create drawings that the whole class can see?
