Class Pics

Well it's almost Friday and I can't believe how tired I am. I am sitting here in my workout clothes doing just about everything to avoid going to the gym. So I thought I'd share a few pics I took this week! Overall, it's been a great first three days - I have 20 girls and 8 boys - so we'll see what dynamic that might bring. I'm thinking some drama is in my future :) They are all really sweet though!

This is our word study board. The pockets are where students keep their spelling lists.

Here is a view of the front of the room - I LOVE the alphabet and vowels from Amy Lemons!

This is our class promise. The faces on the plates above the door are signed by each student meaning they agree to keep the promise.

This is our outside bulletin board. The kids wrote how they are going to be responsible in 2nd grade on the little strips of paper. 

This is the list we made when I introduced Bucket Filling yesterday. I think we will add to the list as we get going. 

I introduced read to someone today - and I have to say my kids did such a great job! Here are two girls reading together  - so cute to see!

Ok...I guess I have to go to the gym now...

Do you use bucket fillers in addition to a behavior system?

I do! I use a clip chart (start on green and can move up or down). In years past I found there was too much emphasis on negative behavior (both from me and from my kids with tattling and whatnot) so when I read about the bucket filler "program" I was really excited. This is my first year trying it, but my kids seem really into it :)
