Good Morning, Bits and Bobbers!! Kerri here...
Well, it's officially our last weekend before school starts. I know many of you have already started school, but our kidlets don't come until Tuesday. My classroom is finally ready to roll (for the most part) and I am excited to share some pictures with you. I forgot to bring my fancy camera yesterday, so these iPhone pics will have to do. :)
Let's get started!!
|I re-did my back writing wall this summer and I love how bright and colorful it turned out! I put my students' writing on this wall all year and then, at the end of the year, take it all down and make a book out of it!|
|This is my Welcome center-the place where the kids turn in their homework, library books, check their cubbies, leave a note for me, etc. etc. I got the white wire cubes this summer on Amazon and I love them-so clean and functional!|
|These are my manipulative cubbies and the labels are name tags from Creative Teaching Press. I wanted to cover up the ugly shelves with some curtains or something-oh well. Maybe next summer's project??|
|I added some of my Number Representation posters to my Math Wall this year and I will change them out as we learn different ways to represent numbers. I just ADORE these guys!|
|This is just the view from the back of the room. :)|
|My library makes me happy happy happy. I changed out the bins this summer with sturdier, prettier bins from Big Lots that all match, and I got the rug from IKEA.|
|Here is one more view of my library, just cause I love it sooo much!|
|I love this area too. I have all of my writing mats for Writing and math tools for our Math lessons on the left, and on the right are all the Fun Friday choices that the kids can play with the last 20 minutes of the day on most Fridays. Neat and Tidy and Labeled!|
|This picture shows my polka dot painted bookshelf with some fun IKEA 1-2-3 bins. We use these for mini trash cans on the kids' desks. Instead of getting up to throw their trash away, they can put their trash in these and stay in their seat! Can I get an AMEN?? I also have my trusty bookshelf thingy I got from Scholastic forever ago, and my drawers that house all of thematic units for the year! In the Mrs. B box, I keep all the seasonal books I want to read to my kids for the month. They LOVE reading these books! For some reason they feel like these books are more special!|
|This is my 30 square rainbow carpet that I bought last summer. Our custodians did a fabulous job cleaning it and it is sooo pretty!|
|Here is my back rectangle table. I got the stools this summer at Jo-Ann's and they are perfectly perfect!|
|This is my desk and corner. The pillow on my chair is another curb find. It matches perfectly!!!|
|I also love my back corner by the sink. I painted the ceiling tile 3 years ago, thanks to Babbling Abby's inspiration and I painted the fabulous chalkboard from IKEA this summer.|
|Last, but not least, my front door-complete with my own personal Melonhead from Nikki at Melonheadz. I love how bright and beautiful my door looks!|
Have a great weekend, friends!
