2014-2015 Classroom Reveal and $25 TpT Gift Card Giveaway!

We started school last Monday and it really knocked me out! I am finally *almost* back to feeling human again!  In all the mad rush of back to school I almost completely forgot this month's TpT giveaway!  Luckily I remembered and you can enter below.  Thank you for not throwing stones at me for being late!

I also wanted to share my room for the year - I was trying to match the blog a bit - do you think it comes close?

This is the view from the door.  Yes those are tables - adult sized tables.  I have had them for the past three years and I have grown used to them.  Not sure that I love them completely, but they work.  The best part is that they don't have messy desks to clean out.  Everything gets cleaned off each day before they leave.  They keep their things in buckets from Really Good Stuff.  (I just realized I didn't take a picture of those, so I will update the post when I do). The students sit on both sides of the tables, and we have a large whole group meeting area for mini-lessons.

I also don't have a desk, but instead work from my kidney table.  I have two drawers underneath where I keep my supplies.  You can see them along with my mess of bags and junk.  Don't judge - it's the first week of school craziness!

Our very well loved library - along with reading buddies!

A close up of the READ sign - I painted the pics last year and couldn't take them down.  

The Whiteboard.

Whole Brain Teaching Rules.

Student computers.  I plan on using the hula hoops for giant venn diagrams - hubby thought that would be a good place to store them.  The fabric backgrounds are brown sheets from Wal-Mart.  I think they might look black in the picture, but they are brown.

I really love this color scheme!

  1. I may be wrong, but I'm pretty sure that "bag lady" bag of yours is an Organizing Utility Tote in Black Happy Dot ;) I LOVE that print! So sad it is gone. Your room looks great!

    1. Great eagle eyes! It is! I LOVE that bag and haven't found a print that I like just as much :(

  2. Well I must have been a bag lady in a former life too. I have 2-3 bags with me The color scheme looks good. I especially like the bulletin boards above the computers. Great idea to use the brown sheets. The labels on the supplies look great, don't sweat the non-ABC order...from one OCD sister to another...

  3. Your room looks great! I love the border on the whiteboard.
