Currently Creating!

I am currently creating "Energy All Around Us." This year, I want to become a stronger science teacher and involved my students in more hands on activities. I am excited to see them improve and become engaged. Here is just a tiny sneak peek:
I am so excited to create light sources (thanks Pinterest)! Hopefully I will finish my packed soon... I start teaching Science on MONDAY! YIKES!

How do you engage your small scientists?

Even though it is my second day of school...my  SET UP is COMPLETE!

Here  are some pictures of my 2012-2013 classroom1
My word wall is on the far wall. The pegboard now holds center bags (coming in a later post... I promise) and the white contact paper is dry erase! Can't wait to start buddy reading and word works!

This is my Writing Center. You can find the supplies at my TpT store! 

Behavior Chart...Thanks Pinterest Users! 

Morning Meeting Corner. Once again thanks Pinterest! (I love my crate seat!)

Teacher Time...this is where I meet with my students during Guided Reading Groups! 

My Corner! Before the clutter began...

Star Student Board...

Library! (Picture above and below)

I apologize for my lack of blog etiquette. This summer I was busy preparing for the year, vacationing and completing a class. 

I will post soon! I am excited to share my first week experiences with only sixteen.... that's right SIXTEEN students!
