2014 Classroom Reveal

So, after weeks of work that included a complete classroom decor makeover, I am FINALLY ready to reveal my classroom! BUT FIRST, a blast from the past--

Alright, here it is!!!! My 1st grade classroom for 2014-2015:

Welcome to my hallway! This is the brand new bulletin board right outside my classroom door.
The giant letters idea came from Doodle Bugs Teaching and I made them using my Silhouette Cameo. A worthy investment, in case you are interested.

View into my classroom from the hallway! (blue rug from Target)

Word Work containers that will be leveled/differentiated.

Sight word list mastery board

Book bags

 Outside door, reading/partner activity corner (rug from Sam's Club)

View from the outside door

  7. Love the bright colors you have in your classroom! I sometimes wish i taught elementary school because it seems your rooms are so much bigger than ones in secondary schools!

  9. love your room! Beautiful! How did you get your letters to stick to the plastic (pointers, Library return etc) and what font did you use on your silhouette? Thanks

  10. Your room looks fabulous! I absolutely love the idea of the library return basket! I'll be on that asap :)

  11. My room is blue and green but I've been thinking of adding a color. I so love the pink but I love the orange even more. Its gorgeous. I'm definitely stealing the AR Points reward and the Fluency. I'll have to change it a bit to match DIBELS but I love it.
