This room is filled with charts, poems, social contracts and more, all thought out as a class with the teacher being writer or interactive writing. You see that writing is used to anchor their thinking with different mediums from recommending books to their "One Good Thing" journal. Their desks are actually three tables with a group at each table which is conductive to working in groups. In the corner of the room there is like a "closet" with hanging chart paper with poems that they wrote as a class. In one of the literacy centers there is a binder with a print out of all the poems so the students can read through them. The chalkboards are used to display a word wall and a list of names with classroom duties.
