Sales, Giveaways and a Tour!

I'm on my way to sunny Florida as you read this because I'm finally on break!  Since I am so excited to be on vacation, I thought I'd pass some happiness your way too!  Here's what is in store for this week:

1. Tour of my classroom
2. Giveaways with each post 
3. A {TpT} and {TN} sale!  

While I'm away, I thought I'd share different parts of my classroom with you.  I started blogging right after school started in the fall and didn't get a chance to share my room with all of you.  I will probably change it again before next year (I love to re-arrange!) so here are some pictures (and explanations) of how it looks now.

This is what you see when you walk in:


To your left...

And to your right...


This is a view looking towards the door...

And here is the back wall...


Yes, I have a HUGE classroom and I don't ever take that for granted!  Some of the upper grades in my school have much smaller rooms (and more kids).

I have a very open floor-plan this year because I have a kiddo who uses a wheelchair/crutches/walker.  I need there to be enough space for her to move about independently in the room.

I'm working on adding color to my room.  I like things to be bright and welcoming!  I also can't function if there is a mess, so my room is neat, neat, neat!  I've even trained my kids to be as obsessive compulsive and organized as me!

Speaking of organization...today's giveaway is My Blogging Calendar!  I created this to help me organize my blog posts and TpT/TN sales.  There's just so much to do and I always forgot when I get to my computer!



All you have to do to enter, is leave a comment.  Tell me anything!  The winner will be chosen when I return from vacation.

Come back soon to learn more about my classroom and to enter to win another giveaway!

  11. What part of Florida are you headed to? Glad you're on break this week and not 2 weeks ago whe we headed down. Traffic was HORRENDOUS...a 6 1/2 hr trip took over 10 hours going and coming. Hopefully, there won't be much traffic for you.

    Love your big room!
