Hey Dear Friends!
Since it's just you and me reading this post.... I have a BIG Secret to tell you.
*** I didn't redo or change my classroom this year.***
I JUST couldn't do it.
1. It gets too EXPENSIVE to change everything.
2. Too time consuming. ( Seriously.... why didn't I listen to my family and friends who said that when your kids get older you actually have LESS free time than when they were younger. It's TRUE, I tell you! I'm in the middle of finding that out now. I have 2 teenagers, a 9 year old, and a 4 year old. Our Nissan Armada is now officially a taxi to sporting events, piano lessons, gymnastics, and so much more. ) Life is hectic and I don't have a lot of time to redo it all.
I FINALLY said it. I feel better.
I did move to a new classroom this year, so my bulletin boards and etc may be in different places. I even purged so much stuff at the end of the year. ( Like those all those bulletin board pieces from 15 years ago!) My filing cabinet no longer holds files.... I purged all of my paper files too. I went digital! My filing cabinets are the new home to games and activities that I use in stations.
Just for memory's sake you can check out last year's Classroom Reveal HERE.
I'll leave you with a few pics I took of my completed classroom for this year and a Welcome banner FREEBIE I created with graphics from Melonheadz Illustrating.
Of course, with all the photos I took of my classroom, I forgot to take a picture of the Welcome Banner I created for the outside of my classroom. You can grab this Welcome Banner Freebie HERE or by clicking on the photo collage below. Enjoy!!
