Back into the Classroom

Another day spent in the classroom...The first day back was spent cleaning and arranging furniture. Then I spent almost 8, yes that is 8, hours labeling and leveling the library!

Today I at least felt more productive...I got my  themed clip chart up and ready to go! Just need to finish off the clothespins tonight.

I finished up the library with basket labels and putting out my new *blue* book boxes! Love them! I have to say, the library is almost done with the exception of the furniture. I am still working on a plan for that. (Ignore the mess on the floor...working on those piles too!) Oh, and there's still the Library Thing project...but more about that on a later post!

On the back cabinets, I added border and Cat in the Hat clothespins to display student work.


I think I left several incomplete projects scattered about my room. The jobs board, calendar math, CAFE board, and word wall are all about half-way done....I seem to like to stop half-way through each project! =) The rest of the room is a mess..piles everywhere. Slowly...I'll get there! So how are your rooms coming along??? I'd love to see some pictures!

  5. Thanks ladies! Anais, I am fortunate to be in a small town and we can go in as soon as the rooms are cleaned. So I was able to get in a few weeks ago. We start back on the 11th...Kristen from Ladybug created the blog....http://ladybugresources.blogspot.com/

    Thanks Busy Bess! I just became a follower of you!

  6. Will you share the behvior chart cards that you used? My husband is a teacher and will be transitioning to Kinder and is doing the Dr. Seuss theme in his room. I think this would be great. Thank you so much!

    1. Hi! I don't have a bigger picture. =( My classroom is all packed up for the summer. I do sell the behavior charts in my TPT store. http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Store/Ms-Smarty-Pants

      I have a couple themes I will be working on this week, including a "Wacky" which compliment a Seuss themed room. It is not the same as the one in my room. Those graphics are not available for resale. But these are just as cute!

      Thanks for asking,
      Samantha

  10. I just love your blog. I decided on a Cat in the Hat theme 3 years ago now and put most of my room together before finding your blog. I'm always improving things (I've only been teaching 3 years). You're blog is usually a source of inspiration.

  11. Hi Alyssa,

    Thanks for the sweet words! I love my Seuss theme and so do the kids. Time flies by, I am now in my tenth year of teaching. Seems like just yesterday I started. =) Things are always changing, and with Common Core, I feel like a first year teacher all over again! =)
