Weekly agenda board- Students come in and write the assignment in their personal agenda so they can keep track of assignments.
Student work area- It is kind of hard to see but I just took clothes pins and super glued thumb tacks to the back of them. Stole this off of Pinterest and now I won't have to spend millions of years putting up and taking down work. GENIUS!
Early Finisher Board- If students finish assignments early they can go to the Tic Tac Toe board and do an assignment. I've chosen assignments that are "fun" but come from other subject areas, such as fun readings, math puzzles and cool writing prompts. Three in a row assignments completed the student gets to drop their lowest daily grade.

Seating arrangements- When students come in the first day I had them a card from an identical deck as the one I taped down to the desk. This year I went a little more fun with the cards and got puppy cards! But this way I am not stressing out about putting kids in alphabetical order but I can still give them a seating chart. I love this!
I hope all you teachers out there are having a fabulous start to your school year!
Bed time! =)
