Alright folks. I finally decided I was ready to take pictures of my room today. Of course there are a million more things to be done but you know how that goes I'm sure. As a bonus, I'll give away an item of choice from my TPT store to the person who correctly guesses the number of flamingos in my classroom (hint-not all flamingos shown).
My new "Best Work" signs for the hall display.
This is one of our grade-level bulletin boards. The smaller stars each have a second grade student name on them. They are supposed to look like the stripes of the flag.
Another view from the doorway
Behind the door
Classroom library featuring the wonderful shelves daddy made me. I decided I need one more bookshelf for another part of the room. Daddy thinks he'll be able to finish it before the kids arrive.
Job poster and part of my cute new ABC line (from Pink Cat Studio)
New curtains and student book bins.
Water bottle storage, as seen here!
New table caddies. I decided to try something new with the markers. They are in an ice cube tray for water bottles. I got the tray at Walmart. I haven't decided if I'm going to put out glue or scissors like last year yet.
Got this PERFECT wind chime on super clearance at Hobby Lobby.
Listening center. Not sure what will go on the pink polka dot board yet. Probably data stuff.
I spray painted my construction paper sorter to match the room. Those aborable gnomes are from one of The Meek Moose's teacher free piles.
Computer area. I came from a school where we had at least 4-5 student computers. Now I have two. They look lonely.
New word wall. I know it is going to drive some of you nuts that the ABC headers are not all in a straight line. BUT it actually drives me nuts when I see those word walls that are perfectly spaced. It looks great when there are no words on it, yeah. But what happens when you have to try to squeeze the 17th w- word in the same size space as your zero x- words. I spent a long time measuring out the exact amount of space each letter would need.
Reading area. Complete with rolling crate seats, dry erase wall dots (I bought mine on Amazon), and file-tastics from Mardel for storing student data, running records, books, or what-have-you.
This beauty is sitting at the end of my desk. Wondering what's under there???
The world's ugliest filing cabinet. I whipped up the cover on my sewing machine with some left-over fabric.
My super improvers display for WBT.
Adding that little personal touch.
Water bottles close up.
Those little lanterns also were gifted to me by The Meek Moose. I just had to back up to give you the full effect.
I'm sure there is more to show you, and that I am missing tons of things I will discover I need when the little bodies arrive in 132 hours. But those things will just have to wait till I figure out what they are!
