Classroom Reveal Part 3

Here is the final day of my classroom reveal. 

My attendance boards.  Of course I had to change them to monsters!
My "Where Are We" (with a monster head) and my "How are we going home?" monster board.

Standards Display (monster-fied)

My teacher area.  Do you see my buddy Sulley?  Remember how he was on my dining room table all summer long bringing me inspiration.  Now he's up high looking over my desk.

Noise Word and Sound Check

My desk (do you see the spinning arrow?  My son, who helped me do my room this year, thought it looked great of course I had to keep it for now!)

This is what my kiddos will came into on the first day.  The MonSTAR Group of the Week will be for my winning group.  The group with the most warm fuzzies in their cup for the whole week will win.  They will keep it on their desks for the whole next week.  The frame is from IKEA.

MONSTARS at Work Board.  It's empty now waiting for some fun work.  The monsters peeking out were from Party City.  They were a centerpiece.  I LOVE them!

My paper turn in bin.  LOVE my sign!

 Well that is you think my kiddos will have a monster-iffic year this year?  Here is hoping we all do.  Happy Back to School my bloggy friends!

Classroom Reveal Part 2

Hi everyone.  I hope you are all enjoying your back to school.  I get to enjoy my new kiddos today.  Wish me luck!

Today I'm going to share my subject bulletin boards. 


This is my character education board.

This was my English and Writing area, but I changed them to ELA.

This was my reading area, but I changed it to ELA as well.  It has my reading strategy cat posters and my SPREADS posters.

Here is my math board....

and here is next to the math board where I have my adorable math posters with Melonheadz Math Kidlettes.  Do you see my monsters peeking out of my multiplication poster?

Here is my science board.

And finally my social studies board.

If you were wondering, the pocket charts I will use to display content vocabulary.  Each pocket chart came from Target's dollar section and all the colors match my subject color.  I color code each subject so that the kiddos know where they can find everything.  That includes my center games and task cards.  The social studies are in blue containers to match the blue border on the board and pocket chart.  That way they know where everything goes.

More pictures next time...  Have a monster-iffic day!

Monday Made It on Tuesday

Well, I may be late, but better late than never, right?  I'm linking up with Tara again for her weekly linky.

I don't have a lot, since I'm slowly working on projects, and slowly typing, and....pretty much doing everything slowly!  Before I share my projects, I wanted to say THANK YOU!  All of the kind words, comments, and emails I received about my last post's health woes were very kind.  I'm sending a heartfelt hug to all of you.  Thanks for making me smile and feel like I was not alone.

Okay, enough of that, bring on the projects!  My first project was one of my Hobby Lobby projects.  Remember this guy:

Not exactly going to fit into my room color scheme or classroom theme.

I turned that into this:


It will go by my classroom door to hold important notes I need to remember and not loose!  You know the ones, dismissal notes, or phone calls I need to make, etc.  The stuff that I put on my desk and when I need them I can't find them!  On my door I can't loose it, right?????

The next project.  I made a bunch of cards to give my students at random times.  I wanted to make them so that I can spread love to my kiddos and reward them with a special note.  It takes too long to write a note out, so I made these instead.  I was on a roll, so when I was done I had 40 different cards.  I needed something to put them in and I didn't want another box.  So I bought baseball card pockets, got a poly folder, and voila!  Now I can flip through to find just the right note to spread a little love to my kiddos when I need one.  (And yes, clip art from Creative Clips and Melonheadz)

My next project is my mailbox.  I used my homework tray for students to put notes to me from home, but I wanted a cuter place for the notes.  I got the metal mailbox from JoAnn's (on sale and used my teacher discount).  I printed out the signs/graphics and glued them on.  (Graphics from Melonheadz again.)

My last project is a home one.  My son goes shopping with me every time I go to Hobby Lobby or JoAnn's, or Michael's.  So needless to say he is a trooper!  On one of our shopping trips, we headed to the wood aisle to get the cute flower on project 1.  He saw this wooden bird house.  He picked out his own paint colors and the cute bird to glue on to the front.  He painted the whole thing himself.  Didn't it turn out cute?  It is hanging in one of our trees in the backyard.  We bought a second house to paint, but we haven't done that one yet.

So there are my projects.  I can get into my classroom for the first time tomorrow.  Wish me luck!
