My Classroom

Here is my classroom all done up for student-led conferences.

This is taken from the back looking towards the front white board.

The students made personalized welcome signs for their parents and taped them to the door.

Science station: making a heterogeneous mixture and sampling a solution.

Another angle.

Spelling station: give your parents a spelling test.

Social Studies station: parents graded their plasticine region maps.

This is my "modern" desk after I had locked up my laptop in the cupboard you see to the right. I don't mind the kidney shape, but give me an old fashioned desk with drawers anyday!

The view when you walk in the door.

Portfolio Station: parents read their writing and other "best" work.

Our photo wall.

Our paper mache volcanoes. We made these as part of our chemistry unit. We are going to explode them soon! (vinegar and baking soda)

Math station: give your parents a Mad Minute test.
