Lots of things have changed in my classroom this year: my method of instruction (loosely based on the Daily 5 and CAFE methods), the organization of my library (tubs on topics), lesson delivery (whole-group, ten-minute max lessons and maximum time spent reading/working) and, well, my classroom! (now on the second floor, facing southeast, so I get lots of sunlight…and happiness).
My attitude toward classroom design changed, too. Partially as a result of never truly liking traditional classrooms in rows (ick!), having smaller numbers of students and reading tons of gorgeously designed classroom posts in teacher blogs inspired me. So when I saw Courtney’s Show Off Your Space linky party at Swimming Into Second, I got excited 🙂
