Room Tour Pics

Well the new school year is officially underway! We have two days of meetings, and the kiddos come back on Monday. It was a whirlwind of a day, as tomorrow will be. I pretty much have back-to-back meetings and not a ton of time to just work in my room, so I foresee some school work this weekend.

I did get done decorating my room for the most part. I snapped a few photos today.

This is the assignment area behind my desk where I'll list the agenda and HW for the week for each of my classes.

This will be my word wall, which is why it's empty. Each week, we'll focus on 3-4 Tier 2 words from our readings, and they will go up here with the definition and a picture. I also want to decorate the white wall with student work.

My smaller bulletin board at the front of the room where I keep goings-on at the school, like the calendar, bell schedules, etc.

This is the back of my room--the Macs I use for newspaper, as well as a no-longer-usable chalkboard (plus I HATE chalk), so I decorate it now with posters.  

 I still have a huge stack of junior textbooks stored on my windowsill, so no pic of that yet. I feel pretty boring when I look at all of your awesomely creative and decorative elementary classrooms with so many pretty bulletin boards and fancy reading areas! My room is pretty small, and I decorate mainly with student work, so it's not super filled at the beginning of the year. I'm excited to see how my word wall will work this year.

I hope those of you who are back already are having a great kick-off to the year. And to those of you lucky ducks who don't return until after Labor Day, enjoy the rest of your summer :)


  1. Looks great! I am envious of your big room!! :)
