Spring Break Resolution

So this week is our SPRING BREAK!! It is much needed time for me to go through and clean and organized my classroom. I've also decided to make a spring break resolution (I think I'm making up that term) to start blogging more! We've been doing so much fun stuff in our classroom and I just don't take the time to blog about it anymore. Also, one of my favorite things to do is go back through my old posts and reminisce. It's kind of like a digital scrapbook. So, I will try to start posting every week and I'm also going to go back to posting freebie Fridays.

One thing I've already completed over this break is creating a new system for storing my "Rainbow Words". Each drawer holds rings of sight words, book box cards, and their mastery bracelets.  My old drawers were tiny and overflowing with the rings of words and I had to keep the bracelets in buckets.

These are my new drawers.

I've added quite a few more fun components to the Rainbow Word sight word system so if you have previously purchased it, please go back and see what all I've added!...........Go fish game, 2 bubblegum SMART board games, book box cards, a portable word wall, a class data sheet, rainbow writing activity, an editable race to the top game, a gumball small group game, and these drawer labels. In case you're wondering about the polka dot level, it's simply a way to keep those few kids going who fly through your levels and want to keep going.  I continued testing my student using our Literacy First 2nd grade list. I began with pink polka dot and create a list of the first 10 words that she missed and then continued on to purple polka dot, then blue, etc.

My next project is to change out my dramatic play center. It has been the doctor's office for the last month. The kids LOVED it, but it's time to move to something else. 

I'll be up there tomorrow changing out our center. Can anyone guess what it's going to be next???
