IT is finished..... my classroom set up that is.
I have been working on this since early July.
My classroom design this year is Pinterest and teacher blogs inspired.
Thank you!!!! I wish I had "before" pictures of my classroom to show you.
I LOVE how the new design turned out.
Take a peek.
This is one view from the doorway of my classroom.

Another partial view of the library...
The ladybug and dots calendar
The ladybug and dots cursive alphabet...
The math workshop board and my math word problem posters above the workshop board...
A view from my desk.. it's at the back of my classroom.

Our meeting area is located in front of the Promethean board. I forgot to take a close up of this area.
This is our "Bulldog Brag Tag" board. I am out of bulletin board space so I used the door to
the front of the built in cabinet as a place for our "Brag Tags". I just used the Contact hooks and numbered each one. Students will be able to wear their brag tags on Fridays. I purchased the necklaces from Image Stuff, but decided to make my own tags to go on them. Below is a peek at the first tag each student will receive. It has their name and our school mascot on them on one side. On the other side is the name of our school along with the picture of our mascot.
This is a partial view of the writing center...
The CAFE board... I used the posters from Ginger at Ginger Snaps.
Just a little snapshot of a portion of my word wall that is below the CAFE board..
My Pinterest inspired bathroom passes and sign out sheets from the Clutter Free Classroom.
My little classroom is ready and waiting for my new students ( 24 of them so far).
Back to School Night is Monday, and I can't wait to meet my students ( and their parents) the night before school begins. It's a great way to help students with those "first day jitters".
AND of course, with only a few days left before school begins, you have to have some time for fun. So my daughter and I did a little back to school shopping today. She's SO totally not a shopper. When I mentioned to her about having some mother/daughter time ( without brothers) to go school shopping, she says " Can we just pick something out online?" I just had to laugh. I did manage to drag her into a few stores AND we had a lot of fun.
Since we are on the topic of shopping... did you hear about these fabulous back to school sales?
TPT is having a Back to School Sale on Sunday August 12-Monday August 13.

I have already been filling my shopping cart with items that I want for my classroom.
