This is Week 3 of the #mtboschallenge on twitter. The challenge is to blog once a week for the remainder of 2014 (I already missed Week 2--OOPS!). Each Saturday there will be a different prompt shared to blog about. The prompt will be shared prior to Saturday on twitter using #mtboschallenge You can link up on with the hosting blog (or any other that's shares the link up). Also link your blog post on twitter with #mtboschallenge .
This week's prompt is to share a look into our classrooms.
Wow! I feel like I just disappeared for a few weeks there. That is what the beginning of school will do to you! It's been a crazy few weeks, and even now I am writing via mobile because we have gone out of town for the holiday weekend.
The great news is my classes are awesome. I love the switch to 6th grade. I love my co workers who are major collaborators and I love my students.
Even now my classroom isn't 100%. I am saving my bulletin boards for my student aides (who take a class called iTeach as an elective) to design and decorate. Nevertheless, here is a little peak into my classroom.
My favorite part of my classroom is this awesome black cabinet. Someone my parents know was getting rid of it a couple years ago and was going to throw it away. It is solid steel and was white and rusted. I painted it and absolutely love having it in my classroom. It is infamous with the custodial staff because I have moved classrooms the past three years, and they had to move it each time! It is incredibly heavy.
You can also see my math clock which is now hung on the wall. My mom made this for a gift when I first started as a math teacher. It is so fun for the kids, and it's painted with chalkboard paint so I can change the problems out.
On my shelf, I use shower caddies to store supplies. The most important caddy is glue and scissors because we do interactive notebooks in my classroom!
I hope everyone is having a good start to the school year! I am. And I hope to blog more often now that the madness of the first few weeks has passed.
