Since I wasn’t in there today, why not make a long overdue blog post about my classroom? It was finally in a presentable condition thanks to Parent Teacher conferences.
@mgolding and @mseiler said this summer when they were setting up their rooms that students know they are entering a math classroom, so why not let them know who you are. So I decided to embrace that.
There’s the other side of the room. I’ve got two of the actual giant XKCD posters from the website (Money and Movie Timelines) as well as a Wind Waker poster I won from a Nintendo Store trivia content.
The yellow paper is the Wall of Masters, to list anyone who has achieved mastery on a particular learning goal, as opposed to merely proficient. (I also have this Adventure Time poster, which I adore.)
This is my favorite. My co-teacher Sarah came up with the idea of using my side whiteboard as a model version of the Interactive Notebook, showing exactly what the students should have, with the left-hand page and the right-hand page. (I also use a shoe organizer for the calculators.)
