Classroom Photo Tour

My Health Classroom

Welcome to my health classroom! I'm so excited to take you on a photo tour.

 

One of the greatest things about building a brand new school is that we have actually health classrooms. Two of them. It is amazing. No more frantic emails to teachers, begging to use their space. No more taping and taking down posters at the start and end of each class. Just my own space (well mine and the teacher I job share with)!

 

Well, let's get this tour started! 

 


Hallway and Classroom Entrance

Let's start outside the classroom and see what kids see as they enter the classroom.

In this classroom - - the most welcoming classroom posters, you've ever seen! This poster bundle is perfect for any elementary and middle school classroom! Let students know they belong from the moment they step into your room!

In this classroom...

 


Leading up to my classroom, I have a bulletin board wall to showcase student work!

 


 

Front of the Classroom

Since I'm lucky enough to have a job share position, I share this classroom with my co-teacher. Thankfully, each classroom in the new building has whiteboards at each end of the classroom and enough space for multiple teaching stations. The whiteboard below is next to my teaching station.

 

 

I'm absolutely loving these pocket charts for my student folders. It makes organization so easy!

I ordered three of these pocket charts and it stores folders for about 140ish students.

 

 

Here's my teaching area. I have a bulletin board to highlight exit tickets and another showcasing our student-chosen classroom norms. Underneath the whiteboard are some of my favorite growth mindset quotes.

 


 

Back of Classroom

At the back of the classroom, you'll find my co-teacher's work area, more whiteboards, and our fancy smart projector (that I don't know how to use yet).

 

Check out our My Healthy Life freebie

 

And over the other whiteboard, we have S.M.A.R.T. Goal posters!

 

Sink and Workstation

We even have our very own sink and water fountain! We also have lots of cabinet space.

 

Check out our Tips for a Thriving Life posters!

 

 

Yay for DollarTree and their storage containers!

 

Only a fellow teacher can understand how much joy this sharpener gives me. Not too loud, quick to sharpen, and you can use it with No. 2 and colored pencils!

 


 

Physical Health Wall

Since we also start each PE class in the classroom, I have space dedicated to a few core PE concepts.

Check out our Components of Fitness & FITT Principle poster set!

 


 

Big Wall of Windows

And last but not least, we have some huge windows. Yay for natural light!

 

The kids have enjoyed watching the construction progression!

    Hi Janelle, how do I create an account? Do I have to purchase the curriculum? I’m starting our districts first middle school health course this year and need this resource! What you have provided is outstanding!

      Hey Aimee,

      I’m sorry for the delayed response. I’ve been traveling without access to a computer for a few weeks.

      Thank you for connecting. You’re correct, an account is created whenever a product is purchased. If your school is making the purchase, you can also do a purchase order.

      Please feel free to email me at [email protected] if you have any questions.

      Have a great day,

      Janelle

    love your room and your ideas. I’m stuck in a room with literally no windows. What we have is a small bank way up high on one wall that has some weird stained glass cover. It only goes to a “gap space” and not the actual outdoors. I do try to compensate with my photos of the outdoors.

      Hey Carrie,

      No windows!!! That must be hard. Great idea, posting photos of the great outdoors!

    I am inspired by your ideas! Where have you been all my career 🙂 Congrats on deciding to leave a classroom in order to make so many more classrooms engaging!
