Back to School Room Reveal

We completed our first week Friday, and I finally remembered to take a few pictures of my room. Typically, I have been in a very small room, but this year, I got a full-sized classroom, and I really enjoyed setting it up.

All summer, I worked on little projects to give the room a personal touch to make my students feel special.  I made curtains for the windows, crate seats for my reading nook, a cool stool for Author of the Day, and recovered a mailbox with decoupage (animal print of course).  I also have printed and displayed quite a few things I've listed on Teachers Pay Teachers.  The reading test/comprehension vocabulary, motivational messages, phoneme cards, and behavior chart are all being used.

Several items were found freebies done by others.  I used the Craft Board from Ladybug Teaching Files and Safari themed frames from another seller on Teachers Pay Teachers that I will display our homework assignments on.  

Well, my room is done, but my lesson plans are not.  Enjoy the day off everyone.  I've put things off for a bit, so it's time to get busy!

    1. Thanks Bethany! It was fun finding cute things on Pinterest to copy. One thing I forgot to mention was the magnetized curtain rods I found at Walmart for my anchor charts. That's worked out great! I also should have taken a picture of my reading nook. I put labels on my book baskets with Mod Podge...another idea I borrowed from Christina Bainbridge.

  2. How exciting to have a full size room! I don't have a chance until they build a new school. We're bursting at the seams!

    1. It is really nice having room to spread apart. I was in a super small room last year, so appreciate it this year. It won't be forever I know. Thanks for stopping by, Melissa. I follow your blog too.

    1. Thanks for the compliment...I love it too. I have enough room back there to have a cozy reading group time for read alouds, and the kids actually ask to come in during the recess time...already! That was my hope.
