Classroom Continued

So to continue on from yesterday’s post, I saw this “Math It Up Board” at 4th Grade Frolics which was linked to Teacher on the Loose. It is a free download from Teacher on the Loose. I also saw this Math Workshop board at 4th Grade Frolics and made my own to match my room.  I haven’t used them yet.  I hope to blog about them and explain how I used them in my room.

I went in on a Saturday and spent the morning going through all my book bins and pulling out books that my students were not reading (old ripped books, books too high, and books with low interest). I then replaced my old labels with the new ones I made inspired by Kristen at Ladybug’s Teacher Files.  I had to make my own because I have a lot of author baskets and series baskets and Kristen’s was only genre labels, but I love the way they turned out!

     I was again inspired by Tara over at 4th Grade Frolics. I had seen many on Pinterest, but when I saw hers I knew I had to make them too!  Right now I have them sitting on the window ledge in my reading area. If you haven’t been to her page you should check it out.  Especially her Monday Made its.

Here is my good work board.  I had to move it here to make room for my Craft Board.  I made the clothes pins last year. Actually, I really only changed the border and location. The rest is the same.
Here are a few more pictures of my room.


  1. need to come to SC and re-do my classroom EXACTLY like yours!!! I am in love with your design and color theme!


  2. Thanks! It's been a work in progress. Every summer I come back and tweak it a little bit. :)
    (I do love SC btw. I visit every June.)
