It’s that time once again….School starts tomorrow! I don’t know about ya’ll but I’m already exhausted. I posted a sneak peak of my classroom during Teacher Week but it wasn’t all the way finished then. After several 12 hour days my classroom is finally ready for reveal!
Here is the outside of my door.
My display wall is pretty plain. My building is very old and we can’t hang a lot on the walls because everything takes the paint off the wall. You can see a few missing chips. I am going to add their names above the clothes pins.
Here is the inside of my door! I just love how it turned out! It makes me HAPPY, HAPPY, HAPPY!
Don’t judge me for not having a “cute” pick up work sign. I just simply ran out of time. I’ll change it eventually. The crate holds student hanging folders. This is where I put all of their work to be passed back. They are in charge of getting their homework and graded papers out of it each day and putting in their take home folder.
The drawers just hold random supplies.
Last year, I made my students highlight their name before they turned their work in. This was a life saver! I rarely had a “no name” paper! They love using the highlighters so its as win, win situation.
I absolutely LOVE my “Say This, Not That” board! This awesome set came from Hilary Lewis. When we start our writing units, they can go over and pick a fry with a new fancy word! I can’t wait to start using it! It was a big hit at meet the teacher!
Then you have my writing board and my AR board. This AR board was changed last minute. Originally had a classroom snapshot board but changed it just a few days ago. To see how I use AR ribbons in my classroom click here and to get my AR circles freebie click here.
Here is my teacher area. Yes, I already have stuff all over my desk. It will probably stay this way most of the year.
The front view of my room. You can get the zebra cursive line here and the primary line here. The number posters can be found here. My birthday posters are displayed under my board. You can get them .here.
Here is my story elements chart, story map display and my daily 5 rotations. The other chart will be used to display math vocabulary.
Here is my word wall. You can get the headers here.
Here are my word work stations. There is an activity in each basket. I’ll swap them out every few weeks with new activities.
This is what my back wall looks like. Its bright red and I love it! It mainly holds my math posters. I’ll add more to it when concepts come along.
KABOOM! is the one game that I always say every teacher needs in their classroom. It is so versatile and can be used with anything. This is my students absolute favorite game to play and they never get tired of it. I have games made for all subject areas. Read all about this class favorite! ---> bit.ly/KABOOMClassroomGame...

One year, we read a story about a little girl who flew around the world and saw many different things, one of which was the Statue of Liberty. When the students were asked to name something she saw on her journey, a little boy said the Spatula Delivery! Too cute!
