My Classroom: Favorite Area's Linky

Just popping by to link up with Latoya at Flying Into First. She is having her weekly get to know you linky. This weeks theme is our 3 favorite areas in our classroom.

My reading corner is one of my favorite things in my room. I love the colors. I love the organization. I love my trendy little READ letters in glitter sticky foam. :) I also love that this is the view into my room from the hallway, the first thing you see when you walk in the door. I really love the set up of my room this year.

This is our carpet area. I love the colors of this area too. I love how "teacher-y" my easel area looks. :) We work over in this area a lot.
My last favorite area is this messy little wall o' love. These are drawings and letters and crafts that my peanuts have made for me. I have seen those cute little projects on Pinterest where people put all of these things into a big binder. I love that idea and I might go with it for next year. But, even though this area is cluttered and goes against everything I love for my room ( see the above pictures- yes, my room looks that neat all the time), it also represents my students love for me. And I like seeing that on a regular basis, particularly on days like today that are a little more tough than usual.

 So there you have it. My 3 favorite areas. Link up with Latoya before Sunday and share yours.


  1. I love your reading corner! I wish mine could be that cute with 4th graders :)


  2. OK, I just found one potential flaw in us working together.... I'd drive you nuts because I am a self-proclaimed Paper Queen. I have papers EVERYWHERE! But the good news is that while I look disorganized, I DO know where everything is!! I love your "Wall o' Love." I have a little bulletin board space by my desk where I hang drawings I get, but periodically I have to clean house to make room for the new ones. Your library area is AWESOME too! I'm embarrassed of mine... the bins don't all match. GASP!

    Hippo Hooray for Second Grade!

  3. Thanks for sharing your classroom. That wall of love is soooo cute. I'm so glad I found your blog. Thanks for letting us peek into your classroom.

  4. Thanks ladies. Every year it gets better and better. I have already started planning for next year and am super psyched about it! :)
