Focus Walls

Somthing that I am sadly lacking in my classroom this past year was a great focus wall.  I won't bore you with the story of ALL of 2nd grade changing buildings AND all but 2 of the 11 teachers being new to 2nd grade again, but let's suffice it to say that it was a whirlwind to move into the classroom 4 days before students began.  It was a "hold on for everything you've got" school year as we endured one upheaval after another (remember the principal and asst. principal being "gone" 24 days into the year???)  Yep, it was a rough year.

SO, this summer, I am working dilegently with the help of blogs and pinterest (which I had no clue about either until Christmas) to get my room off on the right foot this year.  However, I am having trouble finding many good pictures of focus walls.  I would love for us to have a blog hop to look at pictures of great focus walls.  Do you have one you would like to share?  If so, please send me your picture(s) and the link to your blog that has more info about the focus wall.
(  I will be gathering pictures for the next couple of weeks and then I'll post them all on Sunday, July 8th.  I look forward to seeing your pictures.  I KNOW it will help me bring my thoughts together and help many, many more teachers as well.



  1. You can see my focus wall in my blog post about my Reading Block. We use Treasures in my district. Let me know if you have any questions. =)

    R is for Reading Block

  2. Not really a "Focus Wall" but we just posted a bunch of pictures as a lil room tour from our Open House. Maybe there will be an idea here or there :)

  6. I can't wait to see this! I was just thinking today that I needed a "focus" wall because EVERYONE who posts pictures of their classroom has them. I would feel better if my room had a great organized one.
