The MTBoS has a challenge out to blog weekly until the end of 2014. I need this challenge to get me back into blogging. This week I’m doing the Saturday challenge (a day late!), which is to post pictures of my classroom.
These first 3 shots are a close to 360 view from my classroom door. You can see I’m really into baseball. 🙂
These 2 shots are behind and next to my door. This is the left front wall of my room. The Bloom’s chart is because that is how I level all assessments.
