Finally finished unpacking my word work center. I'll start with these pretty basic games and puzzles and then move to more challenging sight word, word family and sentence games as the year goes on.

This is the other side of the Math center which stores supplies that the students don't have on their tables, their journals for several subject areas, Legos and puzzles.

The beginning workings of my library. I keep all these books organized and in the green baskets when I pack them in my closets so as I open closets I find more and more green baskets! The two purple baskets on top are usually books that only I use during read alouds, but I also use them as reading incentives: good readers get to borrow my baskets during Readers' Workshop! I also have a ton of Pete the Cat books which I use the same way.

I created these labels in PowerPoint and then printed two of each: one for each tub and the others for inside the cabinets. That way the kiddos will have no excuse when it's time to clean up.

As I started to unpack my closets I just began to out things where they go. These book boxes are from Teacher Heaven a few years ago and although they cost a pretty penny, they are super durable and worth it. I left the name tags from last year, but what's nice is that I just slap a new label on top and write my new kids' names!

This is part of my math center. Here is where I store the math tubs that hold our manipulatives. The bins and shelves are labeled so the kiddos know where to put things back. I also keep the play doh here and a few other centers as you'll see.

Don't mind my crazy cabinets in the background! Here is a close up of my special book baskets and book hospital for books that need repairing.

This is the Leap Pad center. Our school was lucky enough to be adopted by a community organization last year and I used the money to order these books and the special Tag pens that will read the books to the kiddos. Only bad thing is that they need new batteries a lot!
