Today, I wanted to show pictures of my classroom. It is not one of those super organized classrooms with matching themes. I really like it though. This is my third year in what we call the
“portables” “foreign language center.” I will say that we have a huge property, and my windows look out on the woods. I have seen deer and bunnies around my classroom. However, don’t talk to me on a day that it is pouring. I don’t love being separated from the building then! Anyway, onto the tour! Here is the outside of my building:
Here is a panoramic of my room:
For the past two years, I have used “pods” of four desks each. I am trying a new shape. One thing in the Teach Like a Pirate book is that they mention moving the desks more. I need to do that, and I am really anxious to see what I think about this new formation. I am also waiting on a bookcase that I am going to place by the door for my books for the students to peruse.
Here is the front of the room and my whiteboard. I LOVE the welcome banner from Flapjack Educational Resources! My math teacher friend took the English one, and other Spanish teachers picked up a copy in Spanish again. It is really cute. Finally here are my bulletin boards:
I am excited about both of these boards because they are new. In my first board, I put my map in the center, and I placed arrows from each picture or realia from different Spanish-speaking countries. On my second board, I downloaded the 100 Frequency Words from This Teacher Sweats Glitter. I didn’t include all of them- there are only about 60. I am excited to see how I incorporate this into my teaching and how my students use it. That is it! Hope you enjoyed my mini tour of my class!
