But, that's okay because there are freebies in this post! Today's focus will be spelling and word study.Tomorrow in our classroom we start center rotations for spelling. I still need to add student names/ groups but I think I will do this simply on index cards. Here is the center rotation chart.
If you would like to read about how I am organizing my spelling centers (based on Beth Newingham's ideas ) click here. Also in this post are copies of the printable activities to create the centers.

I can't believe we are three weeks into the school year! I am remembering how much a love the beginning to the year: classroom set up, new ideas, clean and organized spaces....and also how much I hate training children. Oh how I wish they could read my facial expressions and remember procedures like my kids the year before! I don't know why it is a such a shock to me. I feel this way EVERY year. But each year I am somehow surprised!
I am still putting last mintue touches and tweaking how the room is organized. I continue to do this all year, but some of the things are pretty big, so I am not ready to post a classroom tour just yet. I will...but not yet.
