I only have 10 days before school starts. :( I have been working overtime to get my room ready. I am almost there, so I thought I would share a few pictures of my room and some of the Pinterest projects I have completed.
I used my leftover dum-dums to make these bags to use for letting students choose a partner. You can read about this idea here.
We actually made these canopies in my hall last year. Everyone has one, including the new teachers because I made them one last week. This week I will be sharing a tutorial on how to make these to celebrate 100 followers.
Here is a view down the hall where you can see other canopies. I also hung the display papers outside my door, as well as a What's the Password sheet.
Here are my welcome bags for Meet the Teach Night. You can find the print out here. I had to go to 10 different Dollar Generals to find enough rock and roll pencils and erasers to fill these bags.
This is the future home of my math stations. I haven't even had time to think about them. I am starting Daily 5 and Words Their Way this year. As soon as I get both of those started good I will start math stations.
This is what my library looked like before.
It still isn't completely ready but it is looking better. I organized the chapter books on top. I started trying to organize the picture books by genre, but I got overwhelmed. I can't do it. I need help!!!!! Please give me any advice you have for organizing this many books by genre.
You can also see a little bit of the No Name board I made in this picture. Here is the original pin that I saw.
This is the wall above my library.
I made this Warm Fuzzy jar after finding this pin. I reused my Tide Pods jar for this project. I have a question though. Where do I put the warm fuzzies before I give them to the kids? Does anyone else do this? If so, I need some suggestions. Thanks in advance!
Here is my Rockin Behavior Clipchart that I got from The Inspired Apple.
I didn't take a picture of my desks, but they are arranged in groups with a bookshelf at the end like I saw here. This is a picture of their supply basket that will be filled when they bring in their supplies. I reused my empty Truvia jar for the erasers.
This is my new clock. I made the numbers after seeing them in numerous places on Pinterest.
My Word Wall......
You can also see my 3 computers. Work on Writing is to the left of the computers and Word Work is to the right of the computers.
I had to make these tissue paper balls after seeing them here.
I love my reading chairs, red pillows, and whisper phones for Read to Self.
I still have a lot of work to do and will have more pictures to come. If you were inspired at all please leave me a comment. I love reading them. Also please follow my blog for more to come.
