Classroom Reveal 2013 - 2014

To excited to be linking up with Blog Hoppin' and
 
My classroom for this year.  I absolutely LOVE it!  More than my classroom last year (and pink is my fave color..lol)  I still have a few little things I want to do/add but the big parts are done so I am ready to share:)
Here's the view from my front door. 
My Morning Math Meeting board and area.  Today is only our second day with kiddos and we have done meeting both days:)
Figurative language posters from sweet Molly at Lessons with Laughter!  I'm going to be adding to this area:)
My AR board!  I LOVE the chevron and could KICK myself because I didn't order enough and now it's on back order:/
My writing area for Work on Writing:)
Our student understanding rubric (freebie is a few colors on my FB fan page) and our daily goals section.
A little reading corner and also my homework section on my board.
Cubbies with chapter books (loving my Ladybug Teacher Files book labels)  You can also see my clip chart from the fab Cupcake for the Teacher!  LOVE!  I know this section is nakey but if you look closely you can see my glittery clothes pins.....soon to hold anchor charts:)
My Job Board ( it's my Just Doin' My Job set in TPT)
 The kiddos book luggage all lined up like little soldiers:)
Hallpass with clothes pins:)
WONDERFUL genre posters from The Tattooed Teacher!  I need to get some close ups of these!  They are just fab!!!!
My desk used to be here but moved it in the back and love it there.  This is now a table where kids can work or read or my volunteers can work with kiddos:)
A little closer shot of my calendar.
 A different view of my cubbies.
Homework and Spoggle (Spoggle is also at my TPT store if you're interested)
Awesome clip chart from A Cupcake for the Teacher:)  If you look close you can see I'm using my freebie numbers - My Number, Not My Name
Daily 5 section!  I LOVE how this turned out!  I looked and looked for plain turquoise paper and couldn't find it!!!!  Then my daughter spotted this gray and white striped and I flipped out!  Just love how it looks:)
My absolute favorite place in my classroom!!!
I got these big wire flowers from Hob Lob!  Love them;)

 My Math Workshop area:)  More of that striped paper:)


That's it!  Hope you enjoyed looking at the million pics I loaded:) 
 
Bad news......I am so stinkin tired I hardly have time for anything......I feel badly that I haven't blogged more but hoping that will change soon once I get our routine down.
 
Good news......I have only had them for 2 days and am completely in love with my kiddos!!!!  So excited to teach them and more excited to learn from them:) 
 
Have a blessed night all:)

  1. Your classroom looks amazing!!! I love the colors & it just looks so inviting (and huge!). I made the mistake of putting that chevron border on my "to do later" list, and now it can't be found anywhere. Bummer. It looks so cute!:)

  15. Amazing job! When you have a chance, I have two questions.

    Where did you find the gray striped paper?
    Did you paint your classroom walls or do all of them in your school come in that pattern? So much nicer than just plain beige cinder blocks.

  21. Your room looks FANTABULOUS! I have to admit that I am a tad bit JELLY (jealous) because I have to wait to get my Chevron border. EVERY teacher's supply in Houston that I went to is either out, waiting on an order because it's on back order, or they don't have solid colors!! Jeeeesh!!!

  22. It's beautiful. Today was our first day with the kiddos and I am beat. Thanks for sharing your daily five. I can totally use those number and group signs! Where did you get your rug?!

  23. Wow! I love your classroom. It's so big and well decorated. I think I'm starting to get use to the classrooms at my school, so maybe it's similar to others by you. I love the organization you have and the displays for Daily 5 and other things. I'm still figuring out what I am going to do for that. I hope school is going well. I start on Monday and can't wait!

  25. Your room looks wonderful!

    Question: I keep seeing that "What do Writer's Write" pencil. Did you just print on yellow paper? or is there a file that I can buy? Just wondering!

  51. You did a great job! I was wondering how you used your Daily Five board. Do the rotations stay the same?
    Thanks for your help! I hope you have a great school year!!

  52. This must feel so great! Congratulations on creating such an inviting and useful classroom! You've given me a lot of ideas and things to think about... I can't wait to get into my room! (I am not able to go in until the 15th... that gives me 4 days - - including Saturday and Sunday - - to get my room ready! I'm a little panicked, but I will have brand new carpet, fresh paint, and it's a new room for me!). Thanks for sharing all of your photos!! Have a great year!

  53. Love how it all turned out! You've been a great inspiration to take my room a step further. Love it!

  54. Your room looks great! I thought I was in pretty good shape, but I'm feeling a little stressed after seeing how put together you are. At least I have a FEW days left to get to that point!
    Good luck with your new group!

  55. Yes, I know this is my second comment....I may be obsessing over your pictures. Where did you find that adorable blue polka dot pencil hanging by your writing area? Also is the AR goal board in your TPT? I couldn't find it but would love it and would love to see how you use it! Thanks Tara!

  73. WHERE did you get that cool white board/pocket chart holder device by your rocking chair? And how much did it cost??
    Your room looks terrific and I really like the Daily 5, Math, and other charts!! Great job!

    ReplyDelete
  74. I have a question for you. Where do you get those awesome backgrounds? I like the black and white look, but on a teacher's budget it isn't always feasible to purchase pre-made folders, charts, etc. I would love to be able to just print them out and add a little Elmer's or hot glue. Plus, I like to be able to customize things, particularly on my tables for centers or student organization.
