I'll post about my first day soon, but for now, here's some pictures of my classroom...
these letters and everyone's names. We will add words each week as we learn them.
I used this leopard print border or zebra border with black paper for all my room boards. I really like the way everything goes together.
View as you go into my classroom library. You can see more pictures of it here. I'm going to put big books in the blue crate, as we read them. I have two little yellow crates they can sit on. I was going to add fabric cushions, but our crazy fire marshal has outlawed any unnecessary fabric! So...they'll have to get comfortable on the wooden seats. We still have stuffed animals to cuddle with though!
Since my blocks center is in the middle of the room, I used that area to hang my seven habits posters. As we learn about each habit, I will also post the habit of the week in the front of the room.
Most of my homeliving center.
My birthday board on the side of a bookshelf. Soon to include pictures a la Erica Bohrer.
I'm really happy to have some extra storage with this little Target bookshelf. I added some picture frames with students' from past years. And in the background I have a new chalkboard I'm super excited about! (TJ Maxx find)
So that is my room in an nutshell. It is far from perfect but I am pretty happy with how everything flows, and I think it will work well for my class this year.
We had Open House last Thursday, and I made these little treat bags for my new students.
And one of my students brought me this treat...
I guess his mom and I can bond over our shared love for printable pinterest finds, ha!
But I got the best gift the next day during our last staff meeting of the week. Walmart came by and gave out 20 gift cards for 50 dollars a piece! I could not believe it. I kept asking people..."Did they say fifteen?" And they would say, "No, I think they said fifty." I literally threw my hands up in the air and cheered when they called me as one of the winners. And I've totally already spent that gift card! So nice of Walmart to support teachers :)
