Fall found my Room:)

So even though Fall hasn't found Florida yet....(um, bummer, could some of my northern bloggy buds pump some cool air down here?? ) it did find my classroom.  

Can't see them that well but there are fall leaves, little pumpkins, and Indian corn.  Too funny about the Indian corn....one of my students walked in this morning and said "Mrs. Eiken, that is bad corn. " (as in spoiled)  He had never seen or heard of Indian corn before.  I reassured him that we weren't going to eat it...it's just for decoration:)

Yeah, I know, I know....the oranges, browns, and yellows of fall kind of clash with my pinks and greens...Oh well.

Added a banner to my Daily 5 clothesline:)

My door decor!

My FAVE part of the Fall decorations are these adorable pumpkins we made!!  Found them on Pinterest and followed it back to here: Halloween Pumpkin Paper Ornaments.  The directions are super easy and honestly...it didn't take long at all.  My students leaves are a lot smaller than the originals...it's ok though.  I love how they all are a little different and each have their own personality.

I now have 22 adorable paper pumpkins hanging from my ceiling:)

I have a few other little details to add but most of it is done:)  Have a happy weekend all.  Off to see my girl play a huge conference match today.  Yikes....nervous, but so looking forward to getting to see her:) 


  1. Beautiful! Fall is my FAVOURITE time of year! I love how you decorated your classroom, and I love the pumpkin art. I've been doing fall themed art for the last two weeks ... I am a northerner, so I've got to get as much in as possible before ... snow. :(
