More classroom photos...

My ABC bins

I decorated Crystal  Light containers that I had been hoarding saving :)

Patterned paper and a dimensional sticker on each one.

An assortment of items in each bin.  M has - moose, music note, milk, monkey, marble, letter m, letter m puzzle pieces and a magnet.

This is my writing center table. It's regular height, so the chairs are actually boosters from Ikea (years ago). Just freshened up with some bright green paint.

Each little basket has some words or letters to get the kids writing if they are looking for inspiration.  This one has the days of the week words.

Letters for printing, with directional arrows to show proper technique :)

Weather  words.

Word game with paint chips inspired by Pink and Green Mama

Holiday words.

Word bottles.  I used a variety of beans, sprinkles, pom poms, beads, and rice.  These were inspired by Tunstall's Teaching Tidbits

Each bottle has a different theme.   I used sight words, word families, names of the students, months and days, question words, color words, and shape words.  Warning - making these becomes addictive!
