Classroom....so far!

Well, I'm trying out this BlogPress app I've had forever and have never used, so I hope it all posts smoothly. :)

Here are my classroom photos, as promised! I think that I have been making SO much progress, but whenever I look around the room, it still looks the same--does this happen to anyone else??! Anywho...

View from the entrance by the outside door. This is after I did all of my furniture moving. I was so excited because it was so clean and I thought I was near finished--yeah. Not so much.

Math stations under the Promethean board. Not ideal, but I think it will work and save some space! Also, my "labels to make" list.

Turn in baskets on this cool bookshelf/book display thing that was left in the room for me--this is right in front of my teacher area.

Sigh...I decided to clean out my filing cabinet by dumping everything out so I could sort through it. Worst. Idea. Ever.

Working on library labels in one of the two large group areas!

Word Wall!! I love those little letters! (I'll have to take a close-up for you tomorrow.)

My favorite thing so far--my Daily 5 management chart. Looooove how it turned out!!

My next favorite thing--my calendar area! It's obviously not finished. (By the way, this board is on the wall in the area where I was doing my library labels in one of the earlier photos.)

Job chart! This is right next to the outside door. This is what I started right before I left for the day. The leaves aren't stapled yet so that's why they look all funky. ;)

And this is my birthday board! I'm excited to get the kids' photos up there!

Tune in tomorrow to see MORE progress! :)

    1. Thanks, Kim! Looking forward to being done with it all!

  6. Looks great!! I love your math station bins! I've been busy in my room, but it looks like a mess! I am in the middle of labeling my entire library so there are books everywhere! Today I crafted! I need to post pictures f all of my crafts! I thought of you though when I made the bookmarks in my math journals!


    1. OMG, the library was a NIGHTMARE to do and I'm still not really finished with it! I hope you are finished with your room by now! And YAY for math journal bookmarks!!!!!!!

  7. Your classroom looks great! The pile of stuff from your file cabinet looks like something I would do! haha! I love your birthday board too. How have I never thought of using pictures for birthdays? haha!
