Show Off Your Space!

Hey blog friends! Courtney at Swimming Into Second is having a "Show Off Your Space" linky party and Kelly at Beg, Borrow, Steal is having a "We're Going on Tour" linky party. I wanted to join in on the fun and show you all my little home away from away at school. Prepare for a picture overload!!!


Star Work Hangs Here display. I attached close pins to the stars. 


Rockin' Word Wall board and computers


Math Word Wall & Calendar 


This a view of the front of the room.


Cubbies on the left side of the room... I use them for storing books and teaching materials. Each student also has a cubby for their backpacks, coats, gym shoes, etc.




Small group table


My new again chair! With the help from a couple of my sweet teacher pals we turned a ratty, old chair into a new, pretty one! :)


My desk area


I found this cute shower curtain to use as a curtain at the Dollar General Store. I got this to help block the morning sun. 





My filing cabinets.. I covered them in scrapbook paper and modge podge. The paper matches my chair fabric and the ribbon I use in my room to hang displays.


Morning Play List.. I made this last year.. but moved it to a new spot. This idea came from Abby at The Inspired Apple.




I got the cute listening posters from Christie at First Grade Fever and the cute transportation display from Kelly at Beg, Borrow, Steal.


I got these cards for my clock from the sweet Amy Lemons.


Lunch count display. They move their clip and place on the ribbon of their lunch choice. I also use this for attendance. This is my first year doing it like this and I'm in love! It makes it so much easier!!! If you aren't already doing this, you must!


Happy Birthday display. I got this cute idea from Amy Lemons.


Rockin' Behavior clip chart. This idea came from Abby at The Inspired Apple. The morning sun faded my old one from last year so I made a new one this summer and found a new spot to hang it.


Tubs for math centers.


Center board... Same as last year. I need to rewrite the colors on the cards.

Well there you have it friends.... My little home away from home! I hope you enjoyed the little tour of my  classroom. If you haven't linked up with Courtney and Kelly yet, be sure to hop on over to their blogs and show off your space! :)
