Before I left on vacation, I was able to sneak into my new classroom to see what it looks like. Everything is pushed to the side right now for summer cleaning, but I was happy to see that the teacher before me left it clean and cute!
Cute Word Wall. I love the thick ribbon that she taped around the cabinets. It defines the space and adds color to those drab cabinets!
I love these shelves for poster and art paper storage. Maybe I will put my writing center on top of this.
A big projector screen, a tv under that sheet, student desks and a round table, filing cabinet.
A number line is hanging along the top of the wall, borders and paper are up on the boards so I don’t have to change that right away, a wooden shelf for manipulatives is behind all those boxes, a comfortable teacher chair and desk (not sure I want to keep the desk, though!).
A cute TpT laminated set of number posters (I need to find which seller made them!), bulletin boards that don’t match, but they look good. I won’t have to change them immediately.
Here is a close up of those cute number posters. Perfect for 1st grade!
***Edit: I found them! They are by First Class Teacher on TpT! http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Black-Dot-Numbers-0-30-Posters-Ten-Frames-Tallies-Base-Ten-736325
More ribbon to dress up the boring cabinets. I am just loving this idea! I may have to change out some of the colors, though. I also am loving the sunny yellow countertops. I’m sure in certain settings it can scream “70’s!” but in a classroom, it is totally workable.
So happy that my room has ceiling fans!! It can get HOT in Maui!
There you have it! My before pictures. Not too shabby. I can definitely work with this! I get back home from our long vacay next week, so hopefully I’ll get some time to start organizing and crafting in my new room. I can’t wait to show you the new decor I’ve chosen!
