Woooo I'm Half Way There.....

First day in my classroom and I am WIPED OUT!!!!  My EVERYTHING aches AND to make life better......NO air conditioner ALL day!!!  Did I say NO AIR???  Okay, enough complaining....here's some pics of the slow, sweaty progress(there I go complaining again.....can ya tell I'm a tiny bit grouchy...Florida and no air don't mix)

Here's some before pics.  I am in a totally new room this year and having trouble making it all work...

This is the front of my room: (the rug went to another teacher...I am looking for a black and white one)

The back of my room:

The side where I lost some floor space but gained tons of storage:)

Moving and shifting:

Here's the progress so far:

I didn't take very many pics of the progress cuz I was hot and grouchy:(((  Going back tomorrow and praying for air conditioning:)  Stay tuned:D


  1. I know how that feels! I had no air conditioning in my room in Florida either! We had it in the building but not in my classroom. I was hot and grouchy after moving stuff around too. But your class already looks good! :) You have such a big room!

  2. Great job for just one day's worth of work! :)

  3. Thanks Sunny:)

    Jess, the pics are deceiving....it's actually smaller than my classroom last year:( I'm having trouble making it all work....we'll see:)

  4. Can't wait to see what you do with your bulletin boards! You can check out my progress that I did today in my classroom at ericashep.blogspot.com

  5. wow Tara, you got a ton done today! There's something always so satisfying about a calendar up, isn't there? Love the color scheme, can't wait to see more :)

  6. WOW your room looks huge! I envy your cabinets so lucky!!

  7. Your room is HUGE! Our poor 4th graders have no wiggle room. Love the hot pink.

  8. Looking good friend!!!!! When you're done you can go down to my room and do mine. Tee-hee!

  9. I guess I'm not going to complain about all the years I didn't have AC. I teach in an old building but at least each room has it's own window AC.

    I have spent about 6 hours in my room and it's just now starting to look like I want it. Every year I change my mind on where I want 'stuff'.

    Fabulous 4th Grade

  10. Good Job! My classroom doesn't have air either. Even though I'm in MI not FL it's still gets a little steamy in the room for a month or two out of the year.
    I'm excited to find another teacher named Tara. Good luck finding a rug!

  11. It is looking good. I'm hoping to get in tomorrow, and I'm so excited! I just added you to my sqworl.

  12. Great work!! I can't wait to get into my room!!

  13. Looking great!! I cant believe you got all that done in one day!!! I've been working in mine for about 4 days and I still dont have bulletin boards up. Thats the goal for tomorrow:) Hope you have AC!


  14. Tara, thank you for commenting on my blog! I wrote you a little response on my blog, but I just wanted to stop in and say that I feel your pain on the lack of air-conditioning! They only give us AC from 7-12 two days a week! But, I need more time in my room than that! I hope they crank up the AC for you soon!

  15. Wow! What a difference a little color makes!!! It looks great so far!

  16. Your room looks great! I am moving into a brand-new building, and I have NO IDEA what the classrooms look like, what the layout is, or anything. It appears that we won't even be able to get into the building until the official first day of school (our school gets a week "off" if that is case). I am hoping to get a lot done at home so that I can just "place" things when I can finally get into my room.
