I finally did it. I cleaned up my room and snapped some quick pics before I left. Warning: I make all of my anchor charts and rules and wall decor with my students, so the walls are very bare. I’ve covered my bulletin boards, but there isn’t anything else on the walls. You at least get the idea of what my “home away from home” looks like.
This is a picture of the wall/bulletin board/shelf behind my desk. I put pictures of my family at the top on the shelf, along with some keepsakes from past years. I also put up all of my class pictures on the side of the bulletin board. I have my own references and books on the shelves, and I figured you didn’t care about that stuff, so I cut it out of the pic.
My mom made me some awesome curtains this year! I love them very much!! I used to have boring green ones, but luckily she was willing to help me give my room the facelift it needed. This window is right by the door and looks out into the hallway.
This is the sign-in area set up for Back to School Night and for parents to fill out on the first day of school (for those that missed B2SN). I found that cute little whiteboard/chalkboard at Hobby Lobby for $5.99. I just HAD to have it!!
At the front of the room, underneath the Promethean board, I have just enough room to have a small shelf to hold materials that the students will be using on a regular basis. I’m teaching math and writing this year, so it is a mixture of both.
Here is a closer look at my desk/teaching table. I don’t have a “real” desk because all I do is junk it up! 😉 Instead, I just have a small table for my computer, a bucket of supplies underneath, and a small rolling cart with drawers to complete it.A view from my teacher space.
I’m super tired from my first week back. The students come on MONDAY! Where has the summer gone? I’m signing off to enjoy my weekend. If you are already back at school, hopefully all is going smoothly. For those of you receiving students on Monday like me, good luck! And for those of you who start even later, I’m only a little jealous…
Done for today!!
