If you've been here before or have seen my classroom in person, you'll notice it looks a lot like last year. But, I did add a few new things and I wanted to share em' on the blog since I took pictures tonight before Open House.
Yes, you read that correct. We had our first day of school today and Open House tonight. And, well, um, I miss my kids from last year. Like, really miss them. I always forget how squirrely the kids are the first day and how you have to teach them everything in the entire world there is to know. At least that's what it feels like. But, that's the idea. It's what teachers do, right? So, it'll all be good and I'll love those babies and consider them my own in no time, I'm sure. And most of them seems really sweet and cute. That's always good. I'm extrasuperthankful that tomorrow's another inservice day so that I can at least make some darn lesson plans. That'd be good. Right?
Anyways, here's my third grade classroom. The lights are really weird in all these pictures and they uploaded all out of order. But, I'm too tired to fix it. Did I mention we just had our first day of school? Ha.
As I've said before, I don't do themes. Just not my thing. (Although, if I did, it would TOTALLY be a pirate theme. No question. Ha.) I just cut buttons out on the die-cut to make this little garland and added a welcome sign.
I love my classroom sign. I bought it on Etsy for twenty bucks and added a bunch of ribbon scraps to the wire.
Here's the view from the door.
Left side of the room...
My reading corner.
Small group area w/ new stools from Old Time Pottery!
I had to take a picture of their totes because I'm sure they'll be a big old mess within the next two weeks, ha!
My new academic vocabulary word wall.
More reading corner...
Whole group area...
My new piece of furniture will be used as Daily 5 book boxes and other centers.
Okay, I'm off to bed.
Thanks so much for stopping by!
