Here's a BEFORE pic of my class. Gotta love these. Just a little background, but I had to move 2wice in the last 2 years (as I'm sure many of you have to do). The one great thing about it, is that I've been able to purge a lot of old teacher stuff I've inherited and stuff I've held on to that I don't need.
|As you can see my room is cozy. You can see all the boxes in the back of my room just waiting to be unpacked.|
|My first bulletin board. I decided to go with blue and white with some splashes of color here and there.|
|A Pinterest inspired project! I used scrapbook paper (on clearance from Michaels) for the cupcake holders. I would probably mix up the colors next time, but I like how it turned out.|
|These are the scrapbook caterpillars I made for the front door. I got inspired by Leslie Ann's "Life in First Grade" blog! I LOVED her adorable birds. It took me a while to do all 16 (I'm totally blessed to have such a small class size) but I liked how they came out. I used pipe cleaners taped on the back of the circles.|
|Another Pinterest inspired idea! I made this memory jar from paint cans that were on sale at Michaels for $4. When you or the students remember an anecdote whether funny or touching fill out a little slip and then put it in the jar through the year. It's a great option to use for end of the year memory books, sharing time, or even for report/parent conference times.|
