morning routine area in a 2nd grade classroom; student mailboxes; nice room overall!

Morning routine area in a classroom; student mailboxes, access to homework/ assignments, and important information. A good way to keep the classroom organized.

I'm done cup.....such a great idea!    Nothing worse than students shouting out "I'm done!"

This could be adapted to suit my class! (via Team V’s First Grade Fun: “I’m Done” Cups) Students pick a stick from the “I’m Done” cup and work on an activity when they are finished with their work. Teachers can range the activities depending on the grade.

Party Prop: Start with a hula-hoop and several rolls of crepe paper. After attaching one end of each crepe paper roll to the hula-hoop, raise the hula-hoop into place. Twirl crepe paper and attach ends to walls.
