I have also been spending a lot of time in my classroom. I started decorating, and now I can't stop! I love it soooo much! Here are some updated pictures of what I've been doing in my classroom so far:
This is my room from the door. I made these seat covers for my chairs. I made them with the left over fabric from my boards, and color coordinated with my table top organizers.
This is the view from the front of the room. There is still a spot on that back wall that I don't like. I am thinking I may just hang some posters here... What do you think?
My Reading area is still not quite finished. I am still missing my rug and books. I also want to recover that bench. I got it from a friend who was cleaning out her room. I had originally planned on using it at a table but I ended up using my two square tables for my computers. The purple bulletin board will be my reading focus wall. It is not finished yet either.
Here is a closer view of a bookshelf I spray painted... Not great, but once I fill it with books I think it will be okay.
While putting up my alphabet, I counted out how many tiles I would need.... Obviously I misbounted. This will have to be redone.
I am going to hang my students birthday board on the back side of my loft. Inside the loft you can kinda see the tissue poms I made to hang from the ceiling, and the pool noodles that I am going to use to make a rainbow above my door to go with my "Over the Rainbow", Wizard of Oz theme.
I finished the fabric to cover the computer cords. Dont look at the bulletin board, You can see I ran out of border... I'm not thrilled with that bulletin board though so we'll see if it stays...
I also redid my table skirt for my desk/small group table. I made it last year but the ribbon kept coming off and the girls started using it to make necklaces! HOPEFULLY it will hold up this year.
This is the board that I do not like, I think I am going to actually use it to display student work.
I made these little boxes for my students to store their creek cash in. Our school has a school wide behavior plan where students are given cash for good behavior they can spend to go to a party every nine weeks or at the creek cash store for little toys.
This is my favorite board, which is really just my white board. It is my Math Focus Board.
I still have soooo much work to do! But I feel like I have made a lot of progress! How are your rooms coming? I love looking at classrooms! Let me know if you have posted in updated pictures!
