I absolutely LOVE Monday Made It (Thanks Tara!) because even if I have done nothing all week, I always feel like I have to have something to share on Monday. This week has not been a do-nothing week and this is what I've been doing:
This is my Where Am I? board. I only have 7 students (so far) but there will be times when 4 of them are in 4 different locations. I printed out a whale for each kid and a bunch of different locations, laminated them, and stuck magnets to the back. The Where Am I? sign covers the dry erase marker at the top. I grabbed the pink dry erase board from Target (it's a little small though...I also need spots for adaptive P.E., nurse, bathroom...). I plan on having 2 little baskets (or a magnetic ribbon on the wall) for Home and Bathroom. Every morning when the kids come in, they put their whale in the classroom spot. If they go somewhere, they move their whale. When we have fire drills, I can quickly see where my students are (so can a substitute).
Here are the Home and Bathroom signs.
A few of the sheets included
The section dividers
Last night, I started making my lesson plan binder when I saw Kimberlee's post on Two Fulbright Hugs. She made a free, editable teacher binder for you to download. I made my own cover but most of my binder came from her resource. If you haven't started yours yet, definitely go grab hers!
My divider tabs
I would share more pictures but most of the sections can't be filled in until I have my schedule. Once it is more complete, I will do a more detailed post and share some of the sheets I use.
*Hopefully* next week I will post pictures of my guided math set up. I'd rather have it set up in my classroom before sharing it here but I have to wait for some bookshelves and cabinets to be moved into my room so I can put all of this away:
I can't wait to see what all of you have made this week!
