Tip for classroom setup!!! *Must read!


Tip of the day: Laminate your nameplates and hot glue them directly onto the desk!  Genius!!!!
Need to remove some pesky hot glue? A putty knife/paint scraper is your tool.
Next: Make a class numberline
Make a line 1-20 (or however many students you have) around your classroom theme.  I use a large fish for the lineleader to stand on at the head of the line.  Use contact paper to apply to the tile floors.
Bonus: We use this to make a human numberline for math!
Great for classroom management which starts before they ever walk inside your classroom...

X's marks your SEAT!
On the carpeted reading area where we gather, I have an X for each child.  Use colored Duck Tape to make your own X's.
Sorry that's a gross picture from my X's left over from last year.  I'll post a new one tonight after I re-do them.

What do YOU do to set up your room? Write a post and link up!

I laminate my name tags and then use velcro dots. That way they are easily moved if needed and when we clean our desks, the kids can clean underneath them :)
