February Currently and my uber stuffy nose day!

Here is my February Currently...Thanks to Mrs. Farley over at Oh Boy 4th Grade!

So today I was uber stuffy and sneezing all over the place. Germs run around our classroom like crazy. I had 3 kids out today. We try to sanitize all the time. Ugh its the worst when you have to work and your not feeling your best. My kids try to be my little nurses which is hilarious. I loathe being absent so I take my sickness to work even though I tell my kids not to come to school when they are sick "Do as I say not as I do?"

Clutter Free Classroom Challenge

So I am not even going to lie....I feel like I stalk Clutter Free Classroom. Others teachers walk into my classroom and call me organized while in my head I am screaming "This place is a mess." So I decided to post a few pictures of my classroom.

Here is my forbidden zone. My desk area that the kids sit in more than I do since my classroom computer count is limited.

Here is one side of my classroom when the kids are grouped together. Their "Goal Tracker Binder" If any of you know about Marzano and his scales we have a complete book that we were forced to make scales based on our state standards.

Here is a view from my small groups table of the kiddies in their "testing spots." I used two folders  and stapled them together to make their personal "house"- dividers.

So here is my challenge #1. I have posted a few pictures of my classroom. I am behind a few weeks but I hope i catch up.
