Classroom Reveal...Finally

 I finally get to show you my classroom!  I couldn't get into my room until last Tuesday...and school starts tomorrow.  So I was haulin' you-know-what to get things ready in time.  I only took a few pictures since I was rushing out the door today (they locked the building at 4:00) and I was sweating like crazy.

Here's what I started with:

And ta-da!

Much brighter and mostly done.

Here's my {free} banner from VistaPrint:

And I created my own version of this sign, which I found on  Pinterest.  I found the original source one day and now I can't find it again.  Let me know who it belongs to!
I was attempting to cover up the awful paint peeling outside my classroom but apparently it didn't help. I'm thisclose to breaking out a bucket of paint and re-doing it myself.  Sheesh.

Here is this year's version of my Writing Center.  To the left is my How We Go Home chart.

This is the Meeting Area in the back of my classroom.  We do Morning Meeting here as well as mini-lessons.  Above the board is where I will hang all of our Anchor Charts.  On the left board is our daily schedule, lunch choices, and classroom jobs.  In the middle will be where I write the Morning Message.  On the right, is our calendar, days of the week, PBIS calendar, # of school days, Reader's Workshop chart and important dates.

So excited about my non-desk area this year!  A small {newer} computer was donated to me by another teacher and it fits perfectly behind my desk.  No need to drag all my stuff over to the large dinosaurs I have in the front of the room.

I shared a picture of my library the other day.  Here is the other corner of it.  There's also a peek into my neighbor's room to the left.

Lastly, here is the front of my room.  The black bulletin boards will hold Star Student Work.  I purposely left the white board empty so that I could use all of it for writing or drawing.

I will share more close-up pictures as the week goes on, I promise!

And now that I have finally shared pictures, I can join these linky parties!

  8. Oh so jealous of the size of your classroom :) I sometimes feel like I have to climb over the furniture to get to the kiddos. LOL
