We’re two weeks into the school year, and I just found out I’m moving out of my classroom. But since I already snapped pics, I wanted to share them with you.
“Bricks” and “mortar” are part of an instructional program for English Language Learners called Constructing Meaning. Basically, bricks are your academic vocabulary words; this bricks bulletin board is similar to a word wall. On the other hand, mortar is the language function (text structure) used to write or talk about your bricks. Mortar makes the bricks stick together — get it?
The desks are in an unusual arrangement to allow mobility around the kitchen. I put down painter’s tape to help students and custodians know where the desks should be. I put my class rules on both freezers since most wall space is covered by cabinets.
And here are a few pictures of the back of the room. We have a great view of the village!
I hope you enjoyed my classroom tour. I plan to make shorter, more frequent posts like this for my readers this year.
