For the most part, I will be pushing into the classroom to work with small reading groups instead of bringing kids back to my classroom. So I didn't need to go crazy with room decorations, since kids won't be in there very often. But come on. I'm an elementary teacher. I have to at least decorate a little.
This is my desk. I loooove how those bright colors turned out against the black desk.
I could not be more proud of this bulletin board. All of those fishies were hand made with love!
Every teacher was given an "all about me" poster to hang outside of their classroom. I have way too much fun making things like this.
And now we have come to the best part of this post. These books are my pride and joy.
The thing I was most excited about when getting my own classroom was the fact that I could FINALLY dig all of those children's books out of closets and out from under beds. Few things make me happier than children's books. When you're a teacher, you pretty much have to provide your own classroom library. I've known this all along, so for years I've been stocking up on books.
Have we discussed how anal and organized I like to be? The books are divided into categories, and I made labels for each book that correspond with the label on the tub. That way, when I have a classroom teaching job, the kids can match the labels and be responsible for putting the book back in the tub they got it from. Yay!
