So without further ado.....Room 6.
Whole Class Views
|View from the front door. I ADORE my rug. Simply adore.|
|View from the opposite side of the room. Anyone care to guess what soda is stealthily making its way into the picture on the bottom corner???|
Here is a closer view of some of the work that the students did.
Here is the math board. I drew the map up on the butcher paper and the kids painted it in. The dots on the map coincide with the battles they researched. So, no, this is not a social studies board. It just looks like it from far off because of the map :)
|Here is the math board. The students were given a battle from the Revolutionary War, and made bar and pie graphs (after finding the percentages) of the people hurt, captured, killed, or unharmed on both the British and American sides.|

The Hanger People Biographies came out GREAT this year. Each child researched a patriot or loyalist, wrote a biography, then created their likeness in a hanger person. The kids also put some identifying mark on them so you would know who they are without reading the biography. Can you guess who any of the people are?
Here are some other views of my room. Some of these things I am actually going to dedicate whole posts to, so don't worry if I don't explain them right now!

|Library and Reading Cards|
|Reading Olympics Projects|
|Our own Flags, like Betsy Ross, made of foil|

Ok....that is all for now. There really are many more pictures, but I think I have exceeded my image allotment for the day :) I may do a video tour at some point, so I can explain it all a bit better, but for now, I hope you have a little better idea of the room I live in for 6 hours a day. Thank you for looking!
Do you have Open House? When is yours?
