Whether we are ready at my school or not, it is all about to begin! I finished up my room and just in time as orientation for parents and students is on Monday. I chose a theme of pink, blue, and green this year. I usually include some shade of blue since that is my favorite color.
First, one thing I needed to deal with was a mess that I had to leave during summer school. I "inherited" a bunch of book bags and materials, but I didn't have anywhere to put them. So I had to just put them up out of the janitor's way and deal with it later. So disorganized and I HATE mess and disorganization!!
Not sure yet what I will even do with all of this, plus there is MORE not in this picture. But until I have time to sort it all and decide what to do with it, I bought some containers to
The tubs even matched my color scheme! I like the fact that they are not clear. Now all the stuff cannot be seen. Now I have a neat, organized shelf and more room! So much better! :)
On to set up and decorating... I wanted a reading focus wall this year. I really like being able to put all the important reading focus in one area where students can see what skills are going to be learned that day.
Love word walls!
Thought I had a great brainstorm...I had seen all these tutorials for making tissue pompoms. I was going to do that, but then decided I would just buy them pre-made at Party City and save some time. This is as far as I got as I found I do not have the patience for slowly and gently pulling up fragile tissue paper, one thin layer at a time! I sat that back for my paraprofessional who has the patience of Job.
Thankfully, I had also bought some cute circle fans and those were a piece of cake! Yay! I used some ceiling clips and they couldn't have been easier!
I also added a welcome banner and wah lah! I am done!
If you are using pink, blue and green this year, this classroom set might be something you need!
