Let's Get Acquainted Linky!

This week I'm linking up with Mrs. Reed's Let's Get Acquainted Linky and sharing my three favorite areas in our classroom.

My 1st area to share is the view from my classroom door.  I wanted my classroom to be bright and inviting, and I hope that I achieved that!  When you walk in my door, the first thing you see up on my wall are two inspirational quotes:  "Dare to dream to achieve it!" and "The more that you read, the more things you will know.  The more that you know, the more places you'll go." Dr. Seuss.  I love it! =)  I really do try to foster that drive in my students to set goals, believe in themselves, and work hard to achieve whatever it is they have set out to do.

The second area of my room that I wanted to share is our class meeting area.  I realize that it's not very large, but it works because we really become a close-knit classroom community, and don't mind having to be close to each other. =)  I also really like this section of our classroom because it's where our interactive white board is located.  Our whiteboard is such an important tool for learning.  I honestly don't know how I ever taught without it!

The third area I chose to share is the other part of our whole group meeting area.  This is where a lot of the magic happens. =)  We have had so many wonderful mini lessons and class discussions in this area of our classroom.  I really love getting them up close when I'm teaching.  It not only brings us closer together, but I find that they are more engaged when they are right there in the mix.

     I hope that everyone is having a wonderful spring.  Today was our first really nice, warm spring day, and I was loving it!  Especially since we didn't have our typical spring vacation week this year.  We ended up having to go to school three out of five of our vacation days to make up for some of the many snow days we had this winter.  I am definitely looking forward to getting the patio set back out on the deck and enjoying the sunshine! =)
