I've been working on my room and I can't wait to share photos of it with you. Soon I will have it to a point that I feel like it's ready enough to take pictures.
A couple of things I did want to share with you. My friend Kristen had a poster in her classroom she made and I was asking her about it. It's called a "Blurt Chart". Have you ever heard of that? I haven't. If students blurt out they take a happy face off the chart (they are velcroed on). They have 3 chances throughout the day. You can take minutes away from recess, etc. for each happy face taken off the chart.
