More updates

I have been working in my room all this week trying to get it ready for kiddos. We still have about a month before school starts.  I am trying to be very careful about what I am putting up in my classroom. I don't want something to just fill space. I want everything that I put up to have meaning and purpose. I am making writing a much bigger focus this year. (I love my writing board I did) I am a less is more kind of girl. I don't want clutter in my room. I go for the organize neat look. Here are my my newest additions to my classroom. I created a new word wall and an Author of the month board. Also, I found some cute items at Wal-mart I couldn't leave without. :)

My new word wall beside my classroom library.

This is my author of the month board. It is in my class library. 

Cute finds at Wal-mart. I couldn't  resist the chevron plates for board and the hot pink basket!

Classroom Update

I have been working in my classroom a lot over this past week. A dear friend of mine is moving from 1st grade to 2nd year this year. She is moving to the classroom across the hall from me and I couldn't be more excited!  We spent Friday at the school changing our boards and organizing in our classrooms. This year we both decided to do a lot of painting and changing the fabrics in our rooms. Here are some pictures of the latest changes to room 216. I can't wait to have it all done and put together!

This is the board outside my classroom.  I went a little crazy with the burlap :)

This board is in my classroom library. I think I am going to display my Author of the month here. 

This is Jennifer's board. I had to share because it is so cute!
