Who doesn’t love seeing how other teachers arrange and organize their classrooms? I’m starting a new series here on the blog which features a a photographic tour of a different classroom each month. I’m kicking off the series with some photos I took in my co-worker’s room: Mrs. Robinson’s second grade in Fort Lauderdale. I’ve always loved her organizational prowess and bright, stimulating learning environment. (The fire marshal, however, views things differently.)
The view from Mrs. Robinson’s classroom door.
Love this desk arrangement: it’s great for cooperative learning and shared materials, but still gives the kids plenty of space to work independently.
Science area. Also, conveniently, the sink and bathroom area.
Here’s where she teaches reading small groups.
More center areas.
Fabulous class-created bulletin board.
Mrs. Robinson does most of her instruction from this chair, with the students sitting at her feet. This kind of proximity control really helps kids stay focused.
And there’s our first tour! If you’d like to have your classroom featured here (and trust me, there are thousands of teachers who would LOVE to see what you do!), email me the pics or a link to your photo stream. You can also view more classroom tours on my website.
