Teacher Week - Classroom Digs

Today, I'm linking up with Blog Hoppin' for their Teacher Week again! Today's post, Classroom Digs! This is where it all will go down this year! I started with a clean slate this year when I moved rooms and grades so there's a lot of work to be done!

Okay, so before I start bombarding you with photos, I have to make a disclaimer: my room is nowhere NEAR finished!! But it looks A MILLION times better than it did when I walked into it a week ago! It looked like this....
note my piles and piles of unpacked boxes 

lots of work to be done!!
So I spent a few afternoons last week in my room, and a TON of time yesterday and today and this is what I have...

My SMART board, calendar, etc.
I LOVE the chevron fabric I picked for this board! I was so worried it would be too busy but I love love love the way it turned out!!

Also, there will be a student-sized desk and a computer in the general area of where those two small Sterelite drawers are. We're getting new computers for the staff this year!! Yay!

My (incomplete) writing center! In that little set of drawers, I have all kinds of fun writing tools in the bottom drawer and the other drawers will house different kinds of paper and maybe some writing prompts. The little green basket has our class journals (idea taken from this pin) and the pocket chart will have weekly spelling words, etc.

This is going to be my Daily Five board! This is where all our I-charts will go. I'm not sure what the shelves underneath will hold, but right now, it's a mish-mosh of things that need a home!

My work-in-progress shelves. Obviously those are all my books ( I still need labels!) and the shelf on the left will hold math materials, science materials and Daily Five stuff!

View of my desk/front of the room....that handprint rug will be gone in the morning. My AWESOME mom found me a gray and white chevron rug! Excuse the mess on my desk...that wasn't even the worst of it!

My birthday board, alphabet and chalkboard. That whiteboard will be our homework board once I cut out some adorable vinyl letters with my Cricut! My alphabet wasn't staying up today, hence the tape :( I have to wait til someone can come help me put it up with something better!

Close up of my birthday board! I cut the cupcake liners and tops from a template I made and cut the letters and candles out with my Cricut! I LOVE the way they turned out and I think they look great on the black board!

My desk again...envision the cubby hole in the back covered with an adorable chevron curtain, soon to be made!! Also, the table with the pink crate on it (and the pink crate) will be GONE soon!

My desks will be coming soon, and my principal said there's a kidney table with my name on it lurking around the school, so I'm waiting on those! My afore-mentioned awesome teacher mom is bringing me another huge shelf from IKEA tomorrow that she didn't want in her classroom anymore! Like I said, there's still a ton of work to be done, but definitely check back later on for the final tour! I still have two weeks before the kids start!

Now here's a picture of the pile we all have....all the stuff we don't know what to do with and that still needs to be gone through and organized and put away....hopefully this will get smaller tomorrow!

Well, I guess that's it! See ya tomorrow for "Now, Teach!"

  1. I'm envious of all your shelving space! Wow! I do have a lot of stuff up in cabinets but I feel like I could always use more shelves so instead, I just use counter space as wisely as possible. It looks your room is coming together. Can't wait to see more :)
