This was my fourth grade classroom. We were lucky to have such a beautiful space in which to learn. 

Click the photos to enlarge them.

  A view of the front of our classroom. We have a SMART Board mounted to the front wall and projection unit mounted on the ceiling. Our document camera is on the corner of Mrs. Renz' desk.



This is the back of our room.  We have ten computers networked for student use.  We have two other computers that only run educational CD software (not on the network) like Oregon Trail III and Logical Journey of the Zoombinis. Out our windows is the front parking lot and an amazing view of Mt. Jefferson.


Each student has a "cubby" space in which to put coats and backpacks.  We have 36 cubbies in all.



This is our reading corner.  Books are organized into tubs by theme.  We have carpet rectangles to sit on. We have a wall mounted TV with a VCR/DVD.  The TV is only used for morning announcements.


This is our math tools area.
