Preparing Your Number Corner Display
Preparing to teach Number Corner? As you get ready for the year, you may be thinking about bulletin board organization. Photos below illustrate Number Corner in a variety of grade level classrooms.
Although this example of a Kindergarten Number Corner (above) doesn't show all pocket charts, it does depict how the area might be organized.
In this first grade classroom (above), the teacher makes use of vertical space, with pocket charts placed both above and below the chalk line. Notice the calendar markers that have been made by students.
This is a second grade Number Corner display.
Lori Bluemel, Rangeview Elementary in Severence, Colorado, demonstrates how to make good use of small Number Corner spaces with an easel.

In this fifth grade classroom (right), the teacher uses a nearby table to hold Calendar Collector containers as students collect water and convert cups, quarts, and gallons. Word Resource Cards are conveniently posted on a nearby wall. Number Corner in fourth and fifth grades typically requires less space than the lower grades.
